REST implementation of Django authentication system. djoser library provides a set of Django Rest Framework views to handle basic actions such as registration, login, logout, password reset and account activation. It works with custom user model.

Instead of reusing Django code (e.g. PasswordResetForm), we reimplemented few things to fit better into Single Page App architecture.

Developed by SUNSCRAPERS with passion & patience.


To be able to run djoser you have to meet following requirements:

  • Python (3.7, 3.8, 3.9, 3.10)
  • Django (2.2, 3.1, 3.2, 4.0)
  • Django REST Framework (3.11.1, 3.12.1, 3.13)

If you need to support other versions, please use djoser<2.2.


Simply install using pip:

$ pip install djoser

And continue with the steps described at configuration guide.


Documentation is available to study at and in docs directory.

Contributing and development

To start developing on djoser, clone the repository:

$ git clone

We use poetry as dependency management and packaging tool.

$ cd djoser
$ poetry install -E test

This will create a virtualenv with all development dependencies.

To run the test just type:

$ poetry run py.test testproject

We also prepared a convenient Makefile to automate commands above:

$ make init
$ make test

To activate the virtual environment run

$ poetry shell

Without poetry

New versions of pip can use pyproject.toml to build the package and install its dependencies.

$ pip install .[test]
$ cd testproject
$ ./ test


If you need to run tests against all supported Python and Django versions then invoke:

$ poetry run tox -p all

Example project

You can also play with test project by running following commands:

$ make migrate
$ make runserver

Commiting your code

Before sending patches please make sure you have pre-commit activated in your local git repository:

$ pre-commit install

This will ensure that your code is cleaned before you commit it. Some steps (like black) automatically fix issues but the show their status as FAILED. Just inspect if everything is OK, git-add the files and retry the commit. Other tools (like flake8) require you to manually fix the issues.

Please, keep in mind that while using custom authentication and TokenCreateSerializer validation, there is a path that ignores intentional return of None from authenticate() and try to find User using parameters. Probably, that will be changed in the future.
