django-registration-redux-referrals 1.3a0

An extensible user-registration application for Django with basic support for email user referrals

This is a fork of django-registration(redux) that provides basic support for email referrals.


pip install django-registration-redux-referrals

or simply download the zip, extract it and copy the ‘registration’ directory into PYTHONPATH


Configuration instructions remains similar to django-registration-redux. Here is the full documentation:

After installation and configuration, all you need is to write the view to send referral emails.


# Import the ReferCodes and Refer models.
# The ReferCodes model holds refer codes generated by users.
# The Refer model holds referred users and the referees. Both are instances of django.contrib.auth.models.User

from registration.models import ReferCodes, Refer

# The ReferForm is a simple form with only an email field. You can implement your own if you like.

from registration.forms import ReferForm

# gen_code is a utility for generating the 20-character refer code

from registration.utils import gen_code

from django.core.mail import send_mail
from django.conf import settings
from django.contrib.sites.shortcuts import get_current_site
from django.core.urlresolvers import reverse

def refer(request):
    form = ReferForm()
    if request.POST:
        code = gen_code()
        obj, new = ReferCodes.objects.get_or_create(code=code, user=request.user)
        if new:
            # Generation of the refer URL
            # registration_register is the name of the registration url
            # Please note the structure of the URL
            url = 'http://' + get_current_site(request) + reverse('registration_register') + code + '/'
            # The refer email message
            message = "Hello, \n Please register for the writing service here {0}".format(url)
            # Sending the refer email.
            send_mail('Subject here', message, settings.EMAIL_HOST_USER,
                      [request.POST['email']], fail_silently=False)


Referred users who register will now be saved to the Refers table and you will be able to query them and their referees.
