Creating a custom user model in Django 1.6 - Part 5

Published on July 9, 2014, 1:05 p.m.

Hello everyone and welcome back to the fifth part of this tutorial (part of the Babbler tutorial series). If you haven't read the first four parts I'd encourage you to do so now:

This week we will cover user registration with e-mail validation as well as the "lost / change password" workflow.
As we did two weeks ago we will be using (generic) class-based views to build our forms and Crispy forms to render them. We will also be using Templated emails to handle our email needs and we will create our first management command.

Hello everyone and welcome back to the third part of this tutorial series. If you haven't done so yet, make sure to checkout part 1 and 2 first.
Last week we saw how to create and use admin forms with a custom user model. This week we will go through the process of creating a frontend login form. During this process we will also cover (part of) template inheritancecsrfthe messages framework, accessing the user from the template and Crispy forms.

I know last week I announced that this week's post would also cover the admin login form but finally the admin login form will be covered next week.
