Security in caravel

Caravel uses an authentication token printed to your terminal to provide security. This way others are not able to connect to your caravel session and execute looper commands as you on the remote server.

By default the token is randomly generated upon caravel launch, but can be also set in the .token_caravel dotfile like:

token: ABCD1234

Keep in mind that this is a less secure way of authentication as the token is exposed to ones that have the access to the .token_caravel file. Therefore make sure to set proper read permissions for this file.

Debug/development mode

caravel -c example_caravel.yaml -d

This will trigger the unsecured mode (no URL token required); point the browser to: (by default)
