Django Custom User Example
This is an example Django project that demonstrates the configurable User model available in Django 1.5. It is inspired by Dr. Russell Keith-Magee's talk at DjangoCon US 2013 Red User, Blue User, MyUser, auth.User.
Clone this repository:
$ git clone https://github.com/jonathanchu/django-custom-user-example.git $ cd django-custom-user-example
Create a virtual environment for this project and install Django (1.5.4+ recommended):
$ mkvirtualenv customuser (customuser) $ pip install django
Run syncdb or migrate (depending on your Django version) and create a superuser when prompted: (Django < 1.9)
(customuser) $ python manage.py syncdb ...
(customuser) $ python manage.py migrate ... (customuser) $ python manage.py createsuperuser ...
(customuser) $ python manage.py runserver
Finally, open up http://127.0.0.1:8000/admin in your browser and login with the superuser just created. You should see your custom user under "Accounts".
