Feature/Add social login via Github and Active Directory #75
Currently the workflow for adding new users to a doccano instance requires an administrator to create accounts using the Django admin tool. This puts a burden on the admin. It also puts a burden on the user since they must maintain a dedicated account and password to access this application. See also the discussion on card-16405801 around user management.
To make it easier for annotators to do work on doccano, I suggest to add social authentication to the application. This means that a user can sign up with the social provider and get invited to work on annotation projects using that social identity.
As a first step, this pull request implements Github and Azure Active Directory authentication but other social identities should be easily added in the future. This pull request does not solve the problem of having an easy creation of admin users who can create new projects, but at least it makes it simple for annotators to join and work on a project.
