Auth extension for Flask.

Project description

Database-agnostic extension for Flask to support role-based authentication of users.



  • Updated to Flask 0.8 new naming scheme of using flask.ext for sqlalchemy.
  • Fixed issue with importing sqlalchemy models.


Major revision.

  • Not storing the entire user in the session anymore (which was convenient but bad practice) but only its __dict__.
  • As a result of the above, the get_current_user call is now gone and replaced by get_current_user_data call. Similar functionality to the original call can now be obtained by doing AuthUser.load_current_user().
  • Created SQLAlchemy plug-and-play model using constructor.
  • Small bugfixes.


Added tests, permission example, bunch of bugfixes.


Added permission model, added examples, first release on PyPI.

0.1 - 0.5

Logging in, session management, encryption, etc.
