Integrate Spirit user profile to your existing project.

Project Description

# Spirit-User-Profile

Integrates Spirit user profile to your existing Django user model.

## What this does?

This will insert some fields in your existing User Table that Spirit requires to work properly.

## How?

I followed this [guide]( If you don’t want to have yet another installed app (this one), you can follow that guide yourself. Since I created all the migrations for you, you just need to run some commands and you are done.

## Why?

The old way of joining with a profile table is going away in Django 1.7. This is not true, actually, the old get_profile() is going away. This is for a good reason, let’s say you have 4 third-party apps, all using profiles, it would require 4 extra joins to get all the user data.

Would not be easier/better to have all the fields in the same table?

## Dependencies

  • Spirit>=0.1.3
  • South

## Installing

  • Add spirit_user_profile to your INSTALLED_APPS
  • Add south to your INSTALLED_APPS
  • Add AUTH_USER_MODEL = 'spirit_user_profile.User' to your


python migrate –fake spirit_user_profile 0001 python schemamigration –auto spirit_user_profile python migrate spirit_user_profile
