Django User Accounts


Pinax is an open-source platform built on the Django Web Framework. It is an ecosystem of reusable Django apps, themes, and starter project templates. This collection can be found at

This app was developed as part of the Pinax ecosystem but is just a Django app and can be used independently of other Pinax apps.


django-user-accounts provides a Django project with a very extensible infrastructure for dealing with user accounts.
