django-auth-hack

This is a Django application for hacking the builtin django.contrib.auth application. This app aims to add support to a longer username field on User model.

Installation and configuration

To install this app you need first to add it to your environment using pip:

$ [sudo] pip install django-auth-hack

Then you need to add the auth_hacks on top of your INSTALLED_APPS, before any other application:

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    'auth_hacks',
    # other apps
)

You can customize the new username max length by defining the USERNAME_MAX_LENGTH in your settings file:

USERNAME_MAX_LENGTH = 255

Database

Make sure you alter the column username in the table auth_user. You can use South or run an ALTER TABLE SQL manually. Using MySQL, you could run:

ALTER TABLE auth_user MODIFY COLUMN auth_user VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL;
