Log in via email for django 1.4. Forked from django-email-login

https://travis-ci.org/futurecolors/django-email-login.png?branch=master https://coveralls.io/repos/futurecolors/django-email-login/badge.png?branch=master


The goal of this app is to easily transform django's auth system to allow login with an email adress, instead of a username. This should work inside the admin as well as outside. Therefore, email adresses need to be unique.

The username of the User will be the hash of it's email adress. As it means nothing, it will be hidden in the admin changelist view.


Install with pip install django-email-login or checkout from Bitbucket hg clone https://bitbucket.org/tino/django-email-login and run python setup.py install.


  1. Append 'email_login' to your INSTALLED_APPS setting

  2. Insert 'email_login.auth_backend.EmailBackend' as first in the AUTHENTICATION_BACKENDS settings tuple.

  3. Add the following in you root urls.py after admin.autodiscover():

    # Insert email_login overrides
    from email_login import useradmin, adminsite
    site = adminsite.EmailLoginAdminSite()
    # duplicate the normal admin's registry until ticket #8500 get's fixed
    site._registry = admin.site._registry
  4. Instead of using:

    # Uncomment the next line to enable the admin:
    (r'^admin/', include(admin.site.urls)),


    # Uncomment the next line to enable the admin:
    (r'^admin/', include(site.urls)),

    to include the admin in your root urls.py.

  5. To use login outside of the admin, add:

    (r'^account/', include('email_login.urls')),

    to your urls.py


Your admin account needs to have an email address, otherwise you won't be able to sign in!


The admin will display the username in the top right corner of the logged in user if the user has no firstname. If you want to override that, over- ride the admin/base.html template.

In conjunction with django-user-creation

If you want to use this app in conjunction with django-user-creation, you have to create your own ModelAdmin for User. You may do so by adding a useradmin.py file to your project with the following contents:

from django.contrib import admin
from django.contrib.auth.models import User
from user_creation.forms import EmailAccountCreationForm
from email_login.useradmin import EmailLoginAdmin

class MyUserAdmin(EmailLoginAdmin):
    add_form = EmailAccountCreationForm
    add_fieldsets = (
        (None, {
            'classes': ('wide',),
            'fields': ('email', 'password1', 'password2', 'email_user')}

admin.site.register(User, MyUserAdmin)

and adding the line import useradmin to your urls.py after the overrides described above.
