Project description

django-minimal-abstract-user

By default, Django custom User model suffers from the following:

  • If you derive from django.contrib.auth.models.base_user.AbstractBaseUser you don’t get Django Admin integration, permissions and manage.py createsuperuser (a real deal breaker for simpler projects!)
  • If you derive from django.contrib.auth.models.AbstractUser you get hard-coded username, first_name, last_name and email (what if you don’t need to separate first and last name, and don’t need usernames at all?)

This library provides a better AbstractUser class which works around both problems and provides a minimal abstract base User model that doesn’t have any extra fields but supports permissions and Django Admin.

Installation

pip install django_minimal_abstract_user

Usage

# yourproject/accounts/models.py

from django_minimal_abstract_user import AbstractUser

class User(AbstractUser):
        full_name = models.CharField(max_length=60)
        email = models.EmailField(_('email address'), unique=True)

        USERNAME_FIELD = 'email'
        REQUIRED_FIELDS = ['full_name']  # Optional


# yourproject/settings.py

AUTH_USER_MODEL = 'accounts.User'
