URL-based authentication, an application that provides one-click login via specially crafted URLs

Project description

django-sesame provides one-click login for your Django project. It uses specially crafted URLs containing an authentication token, for example: http://example.com/?url_auth_token=AAAAARchl18CIQUlImmbV9q7PZk%3A89AEU34b0JLSrkT8Ty2RPISio5

It’s useful if you want to share private content without requiring your visitors to remember a username and a password.

django-sesame works with Django 1.4 or later, and with any supported Python version except 2.5.

It’s tied to django.contrib.auth. It uses django.contrib.session when it’s available, but it also supports stateless authenticated navigation, provided all links in the page include the authentication token.

django-sesame is released under the BSD license, like Django itself.
