django-users2 0.1.10

Custom user model for django >=1.5 with support for multiple user types

Latest Version: 0.1.14

Custom user model for django >=1.5 with support for multiple user types and lots of other awesome utils (mostly borrowed from other projects).

Features

  • email as username for authentication (barebone extendable user models)
  • support for multiple user types (using the awesome django-model-utils)
  • automatically creates superuser after syncdb (really handy during the initial development phases)
  • built in emails/passwords validators (with lots of customisable options)
  • prepackaged with all the templates, including additional templates required by views in django.contrib.auth (for a painless signup process)

Documentation

The full documentation is at https://django-users2.readthedocs.org.

Quickstart

  1. Install django-users2:

    pip install django-users2
    
  2. Add django-users2 to INSTALLED_APPS:

    INSTALLED_APPS = (
        ...
        'django.contrib.auth',
        'django.contrib.sites',
        'users',
        ...
    )
    
  3. Set your AUTH_USER_MODEL setting to use users.User:

    AUTH_USER_MODEL = 'users.User'
    
  4. Once you’ve done this, run the syncdb command to install the model used by this package:

    python manage.py syncdb
    
  5. Add the django-users2 URLs to your project’s URLconf as follows:

    urlpatterns = patterns('',
        ...
        url(r'^accounts/', include('users.urls')),
        ...
    )
    

which sets up URL patterns for the views in django-users2 as well as several useful views in django.contrib.auth (e.g. login, logout, password change/reset)

Configuration

Set USERS_VERIFY_EMAIL = True to enable email verification for registered users.

When a new User object is created, with its is_active field set to False, an activation key is generated, and an email is sent to the user containing a link to click to activate the account:

USERS_VERIFY_EMAIL = False

Upon clicking the activation link, the new account is made active (i.e. is_active field is set to True); after this, the user can log in. Optionally, you can automatically login the user after successful activation:

USERS_AUTO_LOGIN_ON_ACTIVATION = True

This is the number of days the users will have, to activate their accounts after registering:

USERS_EMAIL_CONFIRMATION_TIMEOUT_DAYS = 3

Automatically create django superuser after syncdb, by default this option is enabled when settings.DEBUG = True.

You can customise the email/password by overriding USERS_SUPERUSER_EMAIL and USERS_SUPERUSER_PASSWORD settings (highly recommended):

USERS_CREATE_SUPERUSER = settings.DEBUG
USERS_SUPERUSER_EMAIL = 'superuser@djangoproject.com'
USERS_SUPERUSER_PASSWORD = 'django'

Prevent automated registration by spambots, by enabling a hidden (using css) honeypot field:

USERS_SPAM_PROTECTION = True

Prevent user registrations by setting USERS_REGISTRATION_OPEN = False:

USERS_REGISTRATION_OPEN = True

Settings for validators, that check the strength of user specified passwords:

# Specifies minimum length for passwords:
USERS_PASSWORD_MIN_LENGTH = 5

#Specifies maximum length for passwords:
USERS_PASSWORD_MAX_LENGTH = None

Optionally, the complexity validator, checks the password strength:

USERS_CHECK_PASSWORD_COMPLEXITY = True

Specify number of characters within various sets that a password must contain:

USERS_PASSWORD_POLICY = {
        'UPPER': 0,       # Uppercase 'ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ'
        'LOWER': 0,       # Lowercase 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz'
        'DIGITS': 0,      # Digits '0123456789'
        'PUNCTUATION': 0  # Punctuation """!"#$%&'()*+,-./:;<=>?@[\]^_`{|}~"""
}

Allow/disallow registration using emails addresses from specific domains:

USERS_VALIDATE_EMAIL_DOMAIN = True

List of disallowed domains:

USERS_EMAIL_DOMAINS_BLACKLIST = []

For example, USERS_EMAIL_DOMAINS_BLACKLIST = ['mailinator.com'] will block all visitors from using mailinator.com email addresses to register.

List of allowed domains:

USERS_EMAIL_DOMAINS_WHITELIST = []

For example, USERS_EMAIL_DOMAINS_WHITELIST = ['ljworld.com'] will only allow user registration with ljworld.com domains.
