django-le-social 0.8

External registration / authentication for Django

Django-le-social is an external registration helper for Django. It currently lets you use Twitter (OAuth) and OpenID authentication, as well as traditional registration.

It’s more a framework than a drop-in app in the sense that it won’t create any user data for you: when a user comes from an external authentication source, django-le-social executes a method that you decide. There is no user creation, no new model instance, no user login. You need to decide what to do, mainly store the OAuth token or the OpenID data, create a user and log him in.


Setup your environment:

git clone
cd django-le-social
mkvirtualenv --python python2 le-social
add2virtualenv .
pip install -r requirements.txt

Hack, and run the tests:

python test

Or do it with Tox to test on python2.6, 2.7 and 3.3, as well as all the supported Django versions:
