Simple role-based user permissions for Django.

Project description

Add userroles do INSTALLED_APPS

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    ...
    'userroles',
)

Add the USER_ROLES setting

USER_ROLES = (
    'manager',
    'moderator',
    'client',
)

Define your Custom User model (optional)

AUTH_USER_MODEL = 'custom_user.EmailUser'

Add subroles for any of the roles defined in the USER_ROLES setting (optional)

MANAGER_ROLES = (
    'staff_manager', 'business_manager'
)

Subroles can have sub-subroles and so on. But be careful not to repeat the names!

The role_required decorator provides similar behavior to Django’s login_required and permission_required decorators. If the user accessing the view does not have the required roles, they will be redirected to the login page.

from userroles.decorators import role_required

@role_required('manager', 'moderator')
def view(request):
    ...

or

from userroles.decorators import role_required
from userroles import roles

@role_required(roles.manager, roles.moderator)
def view(request):
    ...

If user has a subrole of the required role, it passes de user test as well!
