External registration / authentication for Django

Project description

Build Status

Django-le-social is an external registration helper for Django. It currently lets you use Twitter (OAuth) and OpenID authentication, as well as traditional registration.

It’s more a framework than a drop-in app in the sense that it won’t create any user data for you: when a user comes from an external authentication source, django-le-social executes a method that you decide. There is no user creation, no new model instance, no user login. You need to decide what to do, mainly store the OAuth token or the OpenID data, create a user and log him in.


Setup your environment:

git clone
cd django-le-social
mkvirtualenv --python le-social
pip install tox

Hack, and run the tests:


Tox runs all tests on python 2.7 and 3.4 and above, as well as all the supported Django versions.
