Reusable User model with required unique email field and mid-project support.

Project description

Reusable User model with required unique email field and mid-project support.

It defines custom User model reusing of the original table (auth_user) if exists. If needed (when added to existing project), it recreates history of applied migrations in the correct order.

Adding to existing project

  • Backup the database
  • Ensure that any reference to User model (in your project and all third-party apps) uses ‘AUTH_USER_MODEL’ setting or ‘get_user_model’.
  • Ensure that there are no duplicit or empty emails in table ‘auth_user’.
  • Test it on a clone of your project, before you try to deploy it to production server.


pip install django-user-unique-email


Add ‘user_unique_email’ to INSTALLED_APPS and set AUTH_USER_MODEL in settings:

# Add user_unique_email to INSTALLED_APPS

# Custom User model
AUTH_USER_MODEL = 'user_unique_email.User'
