NAME
Django Twitter Auth -- use Twitter for authentication in Django
SYNOPSIS
DESCRIPTION
Twitter now supports OAuth, so django-twitterauth has been rewritten
to support this better authentication flow. It is well documented
elsewhere so I will not be going into detail here.
The app supplies views to handle the login flow, a user info page
and a *basic* User model.
Mad props to Henrik Lied for the initial Django implementation of
Twitter OAuth. I used his utils.py file almost verbatim in creating
this app.
INSTALLATION
Clone/download and place in the root of your Django project:
$ cd $YOUR_DJANGO_PROJECT
$ git clone git://github.com/rcrowley/django-twitterauth.git auth
$ echo auth >> .gitignore
You'll need to add this app to your settings.py file in the
INSTALLED_APPS section. You'll also need these two extra lines:
TWITTERAUTH_KEY = 'OH HAI'
TWITTERAUTH_SECRET = 'OH NOES'
Setup the URLs for the auth app. The names of the URLs are required.
For example:
url(r'^info/?$', 'auth.views.info', name='auth_info'),
url(r'^login/?$', 'auth.views.login', name='auth_login'),
url(r'^login/callback/?$', 'auth.views.callback', name='auth_callback'),
url(r'^logout/?$', 'auth.views.logout', name='auth_logout'),
Again, the names of the URLs are required. I chose not to create
auth/urls.py because URLs like /auth/login et cetera seems awful.
Make sure to run `python manage.py syncdb` to create the User model.
