Temp fork: Integrated set of Django applications addressing authentication, registration, account management as well as 3rd party (social) account authentication.
Integrated set of Django applications addressing authentication, registration, account management as well as 3rd party (social) account authentication.
Most existing Django apps that address the problem of social authentication focus on just that. You typically need to integrate another app in order to support authentication via a local account.
This approach separates the worlds of local and social authentication. However, there are common scenarios to be dealt with in both worlds. For example, an e-mail address passed along by an OpenID provider is not guaranteed to be verified. So, before hooking an OpenID account up to a local account the e-mail address must be verified. So, e-mail verification needs to be present in both worlds.
Integrating both worlds is quite a tedious process. It is definitely not a matter of simply adding one social authentication app, and one local account registration app to your INSTALLED_APPS list.
This is the reason this project got started – to offer a fully integrated authentication app that allows for both local and social authentication, with flows that just work.
