Stock user app but without usernames

Project Description

For when you want regular Django users but without the usernames.

This is a stock replacement for Django’s auth.User model that removes the username field in favor of a unique email field. Both the User model and the forms enforce lower cased email addresses to ensure uniqueness without surprises.

Inspired by the users module in pydanny’s original Django cookiecutter project template which I kept using and then editing to support email addresses.


Install and download with pip:

pip install django-email-users

Add to your installed apps in your file:


Change your project’s configured user in your file:

AUTH_USER_MODEL = 'users.User'


If you are using South with Django prior to Django 1.7, you will need to use South 1+.
