Django cross-site authentication

April 17th, 2013

Richard wrote a nice bit of code to allow one Django app to authenticate users using another Django app’s database. It saves the users having to get a separate set of credentials.

This assumes that both apps can securely access the original database, but if you have a situation where, say, they both run on EC2 machines in the same Amazon account, this can be very handy.

It’s still fairly basic, so I’m sure he’d welcome contributions.
