django-registration-redux 2.1

An extensible user-registration application for Django

If you have issues with the “django-registration-redux” package then please raise them here.

This is a fairly simple user-registration application for Django, designed to make allowing user signups as painless as possible. It requires a functional installation of Django 1.11 or newer, but has no other dependencies.


Install, upgrade and uninstall django-registration-redux with these commands:

pip install django-registration-redux
pip install --upgrade django-registration-redux
pip uninstall django-registration-redux

To install it manually, run the following command inside this source directory:

python install

Or if you’d prefer you can simply place the included registration directory somewhere on your Python path, or symlink to it from somewhere on your Python path; this is useful if you’re working from a Git checkout.

Note that this application requires Python 2.7/3.4 or later, and a functional installation of Django 1.11 or newer.

If you are running on Django <=1.11, you can install a previous version of django-registration-redux, which supports older versions of Django. See the CHANGELOG for support details. Older versions will receive minor bug fixes as needed, but are no longer actively developed:

pip install django-registration-redux==1.9

Getting started with development

To get started with development, first install the required packages:

make installdeps

For convenience a Makefile is included which wraps the Python invoke library. Once you work on a patch, you can test the functionality by running:

make test

Or equivalently:

invoke test

Command line arguments can be passed to the invoke script through the Makefile via the ARGS parameter. For example:

make build ARGS=--docs

Or equivalently:

invoke build --docs

Alternatives has a comprehensive comparison of Django packages used for user registration and authentication.

For example, django-allauth is an alternative to django-registration-redux that provides user registration in addition to social authentication and email address management.
