Simple, secure math captcha for django forms

Project description

Authors: Justin Quick <justquick@gmail.com>
Version: 0.1

Django Math Captcha is an easy way to add mathematical captcha verification to your already existing forms. It asks you a simple math question (eg '1 + 2 =') and validates the form if your response is correct. All you have to do is subclass either MathCaptchaForm or MathCaptchaModelForm in your own forms.

Use it in your forms:

from math_captcha import MathCaptchaModelForm
from myapp.models import Blog

class MyExistingForm(MathCaptchaModelForm): # instead of forms.ModelForm
    #... extra fields here

    class Meta:
        model = Blog

Now you can be certain that the only users who create blogs are humans

Check out the example project for more practical use and tests.
