This Hawat pluggable module provides special authentication method, that is particularly usable for developers and enables them to impersonate any user.

After enabling this module special authentication endpoint will be available and will provide simple authentication form with list of all currently available user accounts. It will be possible for that user to log in as any other user without entering password.

This module is disabled by default in production environment and enabled by default in development environment.
