Add Basic Auth support

See original GitHub issue

It would be better to add basic auth support in the project. I checked the code and noticed that we are using SimpleHTTPServer. Can we use Flask?

In config file, we could define as follows:

startWebServer = true
basicAuth = **true**
basicAuthUsername = **username**
basicAuthPassword = **base64 password** or **plain password**

It can be done in pure python without extra libraries. BaseHTTPServer is part of the standard library.

Loading it will take an extra 2028 bytes (I just checked), so it’s really not an issue.

Agreed, you could run behind apache / nginx, but not everyone can do that for themselves.

How about refactoring the entire WebServer feature into a Plugin? 😃
