django-authtkt is used to share auth between more than one django site (a kind of SSO auth)

Project description

Usage

Add the middlware class before the AuthenticationMiddleware:

MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES = (
    ...
    'authtkt.middleware.AuthTktMiddleware',
    'django.contrib.auth.middleware.AuthenticationMiddleware',
    ...
)

Callback

You can use a callback to use something to fill the newly created user in the third party app.

Settings:

AUTHTKT_CALLBACK = 'yourmodule:update_user'

Callback:

from sqlalchemy import engine_from_config, Table, MetaData
from django.conf import settings


def update_user(user):
    engine = engine_from_config({'sqlalchemy.url': settings.USER_DB})
    metadata = MetaData(engine)
    users = Table('auth_user', metadata, autoload=True)
    record = users.select(users.c.id==user.id).execute().fetchone()
    for k, v in record.items():
        setattr(user, str(k), v)

Manual identify/forget user

Manualy identify user (eg: set a cookie). You need to set a correct request.user:

request.environ['authtkt.identify'](request, response)

Manualy forget user (eg: reset a cookie):

request.environ['authtkt.forget'](request, response)
