What's that

Reusable application for Django to protect your apps with OAuth 2.0.

It allows to guard your application views with OAuth 2.0 in quite a trivial way.

  1. Register your client using Django Admin or API:
from oauthost.toolbox import register_client


# Define some scopes to restrict our client to (if required).
my_scopes = ['polls:vote']

# `user` might be `request.user` if in a view.
register_client('My OAuth Client', 'my_client',
                '', user, scopes_list=my_scopes)

  1. Decorate your views with oauth_required (suppose in polls.views):
from oauthost.decorators import oauth_required

def vote(request, poll_id, variant_id):
  1. Attach oauthost.urls to project urls (in
from oauthost.urls import urlpatterns as oauthost_urlpatterns

urlpatterns = ...  # Your actual urlpatterns are ommited.

urlpatterns += oauthost_urlpatterns

Now authorization endpoint is available at { BASE_URL }auth/ and token endpoint is available at { BASE_URL }token/.

That's all for oauthost, connect using your client.
