Django-Lastfm-Auth is an extension to Django-Social-Auth which adds a backend for Last.fm.
If you are looking for a stand alone Last.fm authentication backend then please check out django-lastfmauth.
The development of this backend has stopped and it is not expected to be maintained in the future. If you are interested in picking up the development of this project please let me know.
- Django-Social-Auth >= 0.3.3
- Django >= 1.2.5
- Python-OAuth2 >= 1.5.167
- Python-Openid >= 2.2
In order to use this application you must sign up for API keys on Last.fm. These should be put into your settings file using the settings:
LASTFM_API_KEY = '' # Your api key LASTFM_SECRET = '' # Your api secret
Similar to the other OAuth backends you can define
LASTFM_EXTRA_DATA = [('realname', 'realname'), ]
as a list of tuples (response name, alias) to store on the UserSocialAuth model.
