Updated at 2017-01-03 12:45

Generate passwords for Basic Auth:

sudo htpasswd -c /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/sub.example.com.htpasswd first-user
sudo htpasswd /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/sub.example.com.htpasswd second-user

Check how they look:

cat /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/sub.example.com.htpasswd
first-user:$21d3d12wd12e21e21sceesaw1
second-user:$7qwd897w798qd987wq987qdwq

Use them:

vim /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/sub.example.com.conf
server {
    listen 443 ssl http2;
    server_name sub.example.com;
    ssl_certificate /path/to/key/fullchain;
    ssl_certificate_key /path/to/key/privkey;
    location / {
        include uwsgi_params;
        uwsgi_pass unix:/home/sub/run/sub.sock;
        auth_basic "sub";
        auth_basic_user_file /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/sub.example.com.htpasswd;
    }
    location /static {
        auth_basic off;
        root /home/sub/apps/sub/var;
    }
}
