User Authentication and Management

So, you're writing a Flask web application and would like to authenticate your users.
You start with a simple Login page, but soon enough you'll need to handle:
  • Registrations and Email Confirmations
  • Change Usernames, Change Passwords, and Forgotten Passwords

And wouldn't it be nice to also offer:

  • Added Security
  • Increased Reliability
  • Role-based Authorization
  • Internationalization (Chinese, Dutch, English, Farsi, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, and Turkish)
