Django social authentication made simple.

Django Social Auth
==================

Django Social Auth is an easy way to setup social authentication/authorization
mechanism for Django projects.

Crafted using base code from django-twitter-oauth_ and django-openid-auth_,
it implements a common interface to define new authentication providers from
third parties.

You can view this app's documentation on `Read the Docs`_ too.
