Persona is Shutting Down

Mozilla has announced that Persona will be shutting down November 2016. django-browserid relies on the Persona service and will stop functioning properly once Persona is shut down. While it is possible to self-host Persona and configure django-browserid to rely on your own instance, this is difficult and not recommended. See the wiki page linked above for recommended alternatives to Persona for authentication.



django-browserid is a library that integrates BrowserID authentication into Django.

Supported versions include Python 2.7, 3.4, and onward, and Django 1.8 and up. For more details, check this project's tox test suite or TravisCI.
