Stock user app but without usernames
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 settings.py file:
INSTALLED_APPS = ( 'users', )
Change your project’s configured user in your settings.py 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+.
Update Django migrations to reflect field changes for base user model
Support Django 1.8
Adds a get_username method to User model
