Keep JupyterHub usernames / passwords in a Google Sheet


In September 2016, while the world was a little less intense than just now, I apparently had the brilliant idea to let users authenticate to a JupyterHub with a username / password set by admins on a google sheet. I apparently wrote the code and published it, but didn’t publicize it too much - probably because the subsequent few months were very depressing for many reasons.

People shouldn’t use this authenticator. nativeauthenticator is much better, and you should use that instead.

Fun blast from the past :slight_smile:
