Integrate Spirit user profile to your existing project.
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.
I followed this [guide](http://django-authtools.readthedocs.org/en/latest/how-to/migrate-to-a-custom-user-model.html). 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.
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?
- Add spirit_user_profile to your INSTALLED_APPS
- Add south to your INSTALLED_APPS
- Add AUTH_USER_MODEL = ‘spirit_user_profile.User’ to your settings.py
Run:python manage.py migrate –fake spirit_user_profile 0001 python manage.py schemamigration –auto spirit_user_profile python manage.py migrate spirit_user_profile
