Django cross-site authentication

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.

    will be preserved.
    
    Markdown is turned off in code blocks:

To create not a block, but an inline code span, use backticks:

Here is some inline `code`.
