An inobstrusive way to login with Twitter into your Django application.

twitter, django, login
pip install django-twitter==0.1.0


django-twitter allows your users to login into your application using Twitter in a easy way.

How To Use

  1. Add 'twitter' to your apps list

  2. Include('twitter.urls') in your url app

  3. Add in

    CONSUMER_KEY = "your_consumer_key" CONSUMER_SECRET = "your_consumer_secret" CALLBACK_URL = 'your_awesome_url'

CONSUMER_KEY: You can obtain it from your Twitter account. CONSUMER_SECRET: You can obtain it from your Twitter account. CALLBACK_URL: is the url inside your application that should be shown when the authentication process went ok. It must be same as Twitter callback url.

  1. Connect with tokens_received signal:

from twitter import signals

def tokens_received(sender, request, screen_name, oauth_token, oauth_token_secret, **kwargs):
#Your stuff here


How it works

To insert the link to Twitter, include this in your template : {% url twitter_begin_auth %} in a link. When the user click on the link, is redirected to Twitter, and once logged in, it will redirect you to CALLBACK_URL in your application and tokens_received signal will be raised.


Remember that your Twitter callback url must be the same as CALLBACK_URL


djano-twitter uses Django 1.3 and oauth2
