How to use Netlify identity widget in R blogdown

R blogdown is super convenient to publish Rmarkdown report using netlify.

In order to build a private blog and control access, I found netlify identity widget could be a solution. Useful reference are:

  1. Authenticate users with Netlify Identity

  2. netlify identity widget

From the README file in netlify identity widget

"You can add controls for the widget with HTML:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <title>A static website</title>

  <!-- include the widget -->
  <script type="text/javascript" src="https://identity.netlify.com/v1/netlify-identity-widget.js"></script>
</head>
<body>
  <!-- Add a menu:
   Log in / Sign up - when the user is not logged in
   Username / Log out - when the user is logged in
  -->
  <div data-netlify-identity-menu></div>

  <!-- Add a simpler button:
    Simple button that will open the modal.
  -->
  <div data-netlify-identity-button>Login with Netlify Identity</div>
</body>
</html>

You can use this global object like this:

// Open the modal
netlifyIdentity.open();

// Get the current user:
// Available after on('init') is invoked
const user = netlifyIdentity.currentUser();

// Bind to events
netlifyIdentity.on('init', user => console.log('init', user));
netlifyIdentity.on('login', user => console.log('login', user));
netlifyIdentity.on('logout', () => console.log('Logged out'));
netlifyIdentity.on('error', err => console.error('Error', err));
netlifyIdentity.on('open', () => console.log('Widget opened'));
netlifyIdentity.on('close', () => console.log('Widget closed'));

// Unbind from events
netlifyIdentity.off('login'); // to unbind all registered handlers
netlifyIdentity.off('login', handler); // to unbind a single handler

// Close the modal
netlifyIdentity.close();

// Log out the user
netlifyIdentity.logout();

// Refresh the user's JWT
// Call in on('login') handler to ensure token refreshed after it expires (1hr)  
// Note: this method returns a promise.
netlifyIdentity.refresh().then((jwt)=>console.log(jwt))

// Change language
netlifyIdentity.setLocale('en');

Which blogdown file should I add above code into?

How to integrate netlify identity widget into R blogdown?

Thanks a lot!


UPDATE:

I found two approaches might be helpful:

  1. netlify-plugin-password-protection, which applies staticrypt.

  2. Another tutorial: Password-protected pages on Netlify.

For reproducible example, the Hugo Theme I used in blogdown is pulp theme, the file structure is the following:
