django-allauth is a reusable Django app that allows for both local and social authentication, with flows that just work.


Supported Flows

  • Signup of both local and social accounts
  • Connecting more than one social account to a local account
  • Disconnecting a social account -- requires setting a password if only the local account remains
  • Optional instant-signup for social accounts -- no questions asked
  • E-mail address management (multiple e-mail addresses, setting a primary)
  • Password forgotten flow
  • E-mail address verification flow

  • Supports multiple authentication schemes (e.g. login by user name, or by e-mail), as well as multiple strategies for account verification (ranging from none to e-mail verification).
  • All access tokens are consistently stored so that you can publish wall updates etc.
  • Pluggable signup form for asking additional questions during signup.
  • Support for connecting multiple social accounts to a Django user account.
  • The required consumer keys and secrets for interacting with Facebook, Twitter and the likes are to be configured in the database via the Django admin using the SocialApp model.
  • Consumer keys, tokens make use of the Django sites framework. This is especially helpful for larger multi-domain projects, but also allows for for easy switching between a development (localhost) and production setup without messing with your settings and database.
