Authentication and Registration in Django Rest Framework

Project description

Dj-Rest-Auth

<iMerica> Coverage Status

Drop-in API endpoints for handling authentication securely in Django Rest Framework. Works especially well with SPAs (e.g React, Vue, Angular), and Mobile applications.

Requirements

  • Django 2 or 3
  • Python 3

Quick Setup

Install package

pip install dj-rest-auth

Add dj_rest_auth app to INSTALLED_APPS in your django settings.py:

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    ...,
    'rest_framework',
    'rest_framework.authtoken',
    ...,
    'dj_rest_auth'
)

Add URL patterns

urlpatterns = [
    path('dj-rest-auth/', include('dj_rest_auth.urls')),
]

(Optional) Use Http-Only cookies

REST_USE_JWT = True
JWT_AUTH_COOKIE = 'jwt-auth'

Testing

To run the tests within a virtualenv, run python runtests.py from the repository directory. The easiest way to run test coverage is with coverage, which runs the tests against all supported Django installs. To run the test coverage within a virtualenv, run coverage run ./runtests.py from the repository directory then run coverage report.

Tox

Testing may also be done using tox, which will run the tests against all supported combinations of python and django.

Install tox, either globally or within a virtualenv, and then simply run tox from the repository directory. As there are many combinations, you may run them in parallel using tox --parallel.

The tox.ini includes an environment for testing code coverage and you can run it and view this report with tox -e coverage.

Linting may also be performed via flake8 by running tox -e flake8.
