Installation

Add your WordPress’s auth keys and salts (found in wp-config.php) to your settings.py.

WORDPRESS_LOGGED_IN_KEY = "rs&^D%jPdu=vk|VVDsdfsdgsdgsdg9sd87f98s7h[Xm$3gT/@1xdasd"
WORDPRESS_LOGGED_IN_SALT = "3]x^n{d8=su23902iu09jdc09asjd09asjd09jasdV-Lv-OydAQ%?~"

Add your WordPress database to DATABASES in settings.py.

DATABASES = {
    'default': {
        ... # default django DB
    },
    'wordpress': {  # must be named 'wordpress'
        'ENGINE': 'django.db.backends.mysql',
        'NAME': 'wordpress',
        'USER': '...',
        'PASSWORD': '...',
        'HOST': '...',
        'PORT': 3306,
    }
}

Add the middleware to MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES in settings.py. Make sure it’s placed somewhere after the session middleware.

MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES = (
    'django.contrib.sessions.middleware.SessionMiddleware',
    # ...
    'wordpress_auth_lite.middleware.WordPressAuthMiddleware',
)

Finally, add wordpress_auth_lite to INSTALLED_APPS.

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    # ...
    'wordpress_auth_lite',
)

Usage

To restrict a view to users that are authenticated with WordPress: wordpress_requires_role decorator.

from wordpress_auth_lite.decorators import wordpress_login_required

@wordpress_login_required
def my_view():
    pass

Finally, the middleware provides access to the WordPress user via request.wordpress_user.

See models.py for full reference. Some of the redundant naming conventions in the WordPress database have been made simpler as well.
