mcauth 1.0

Django backend for Minecraft.net authentication.

django-mcauth is a pluggable authentication back-end that lets your users login with their Minecraft.net user/pass.

Warning

Authentication against Minecraft.net auth servers is not officially endorsed, and may cease to work at any time. Using a fallback authentication backend (like Django’s default) will prevent complete failure if Notch ever decides to lock things down. Also keep in mind that if you run a high traffic site, you may be asked to stop hitting the Minecraft.net auth server.

Requirements

  • Django 1.2+
  • Python 2.6 or 2.7 (I don’t care to officially support 2.5)

Installation

Add 'mcauth.backend.MinecraftAuthServerBackend' to your settings.py like so:

AUTHENTICATION_BACKENDS = (
    'mcauth.backend.MinecraftAuthServerBackend',
    'django.contrib.auth.backends.ModelBackend',
)

If you don’t want to create new local Django users when someone logs in with a valid user/pass, but doesn’t already exist in the DB, you can do this in settings.py:

# Only existing User objects can be authenticated against.
MCAUTH_CREATE_UNKNOWN_USERS = False
