Email identification authentication app for Django.

Project description

travis codacy coverage pypi

Django’s auth.User model uses a username field to uniquely identify a user. django-simple-authentication uniquely identifies users with an email address instead, removing the username field altogether.

Additionally, django-simple-authentication offers a feature that forces users to change their password the next time they log in. This can be done by setting simple_authentication.User.force_password_change to True. The ForcePasswordChangeMiddleware must be installed for this feature to work properly.

Quick-start

  1. Install: pip install django-simple-authentication.
  2. Add: simple_authentication to INSTALLED_APPS.
  3. Add: AUTH_USER_MODEL = 'simple_authentication'.
  4. Add: simple_authentication.middleware.ForcePasswordChanceMiddleware to MIDDLEWARE.
  5. Make migrations: python manage.py makemigrations simple_authentication.
  6. Apply migrations: python manage.py migrate simple_authentication.

Compatibility

django_simple_authentication has been tested on Django versions >= 2.0. It may work without issue on earlier versions of Django (or Python), but this is not officially supported.

Changelog

0.1.2 Improved unit test coverage (up to 76%).
