Authomatic

https://travis-ci.org/authomatic/authomatic.svg?branch=master

Authomatic is a framework agnostic library for Python web applications with a minimalistic but powerful interface which simplifies authentication of users by third party providers like Facebook or Twitter through standards like OAuth and OpenID.

For more info visit the project page at http://authomatic.github.io/authomatic.

Maintainers

Authomatic was migrated from a private project of Peter Hudec to a community-managed project. Many thanks to Peter Hudec for all his hard work for creating and maintaining authomatic! We are now a small team of volunteers, not paid for the work here. Any help is appreciated!
