Django use Email as Username

https://travis-ci.org/jmfederico/django-use-email-as-username.svg?branch=master

A Django app to use email as username for user authentication.

Features

  • Custom User model with no username field
  • Use email as username
  • Includes a django-admin command for quick install
  • Follow Django best practices for new Django projects and User models.

Quickstart

  1. Install Django use Email as Username:

    # Run in your terminal
    pip install django-use-email-as-username
  2. Add it to your INSTALLED_APPS:

    # In your settings.py file
    INSTALLED_APPS = (
        ...
        'django_use_email_as_username.apps.DjangoUseEmailAsUsernameConfig',
        ...
    )
  3. Create your new django app:

    # Run in your terminal
    python manage.py create_custom_user_app
  4. Add the new app to your INSTALLED_APPS:

    # In your settings.py file
    INSTALLED_APPS = (
        ...
        'django_use_email_as_username.apps.DjangoUseEmailAsUsernameConfig',
        'custom_user.apps.CustomUserConfig',
        ...
    )
  5. Now instruct Django to use your new model:

    # In your settings.py file
    AUTH_USER_MODEL = 'custom_user.User'
  6. Create and run migrations:

    # Run in your terminal
    python manage.py makemigrations
    python manage.py migrate

You now have a new Django app which provides a custom User model.

You can further modify the new User Model any time in the future, just remember to create and run the migrations.

Notes

This app gives you a custom User model, which is good practice for new Django projects.

Changing to a custom user model mid-project is not easy.

It is recommended to always create a custom User model at the beginning of every Django project.
