Building a Django User Management System (Summary)

Django is a versatile framework, and it does its best to help you with every possible task, including user management. It provides a lot of ready-to-use resources, but sometimes you need to extend them just a bit.

In this video course, you’ve learned how to:

  • Extend your Django application with a full set of user management features
  • Adjust the default Django templates to better suit your needs
  • Use Mailgun to send password reset emails
  • Add an option to log in with GitHub

This should provide you with a good starting point for your own amazing ideas. Real Python has several Django tutorials to help you along the way.

A very succint course, though it would have been nice to understand more on the code path('accounts/', include('django.contrib.auth.urls')), and what is happening here. I came across an error when I added a namespace to my users’ url.py file and was not able to figure it out until I went to the Django repo and have a deeper look at what the paths are doing and why they request certain templates.
