OAuth 2.0 provider for python

Project description

python-oauth2 is a framework that aims at making it easy to provide authentication via OAuth 2.0 within an application stack.


python-oauth2 is currently not ready for use in production environments. While the basic implementations work already pretty well, some types of authorization Grants defined in the RFC are still missing. Also some features like scopes or Refreh Token have not been implemented yet and the project has not been tested against other versions of Python than 2.7.


python-oauth2 is available on PyPI

pip install python-oauth2


Storage adapters

python-oauth2 handles the request/response flow needed to create a OAuth 2.0 token. It does not define how a token is stored so you can choose the persistence strategy that works best for you. It is possible to write a token to mysql or mongodb for persistence, save it in memcache or redis for fast access or mix both approaches. This flexibility is achieved by the use of storage adapters that define an interface which is called by a Grant handler during processing.

The module defines base classes for each type of storage. Also take a look at the examples in the examples directory of the project.

Site adapter

Like for storage, python-oauth2 does not define how you identify a user or show a confirmation dialogue. Instead your application should use the API defined by oauth2.web.SiteAdapter.
