    Project mention: I have a project idea but I have no idea where to start - any advice greatly appreciated!!! | | 2021-02-24

    Some WYSIWYG like Wordpress might be one of the fastest ways to get up and running, but if you'd rather use code like we do, and you have experience with Python, try picking up the Django web framework. Here's a big tutorial video tutorial from Free Code Camp, another from Traversy Media, here's Mozilla's introductory tutorial to Django, and if you want to deploy the project on Digital Ocean (or Linode or AWS, it shouldn't really matter where), here's a tutorial for that. Enjoy.

  • GitHub repo factory_boy

    A test fixtures replacement for Python

  • GitHub repo authlib

    The ultimate Python library in building OAuth, OpenID Connect clients and servers. JWS,JWE,JWK,JWA,JWT included.

    Project mention: Aioauth – asynchronous oauth2 framework for Python 3 | | 2021-01-10

    aioauth is a library, the server in this context means that it implements the oauth2 protocol itself (rfc6749). there are few libraries for Python: authlib and oauthlib that also implement the oauth2 protocol, but unfortunately their implementation is not asynchronous, thus you cannot use these libraries in fastapi or aiohttp. aioauth solves this problem

  • GitHub repo Weblate

  • GitHub repo django-oauth-toolkit

    OAuth2 goodies for the Djangonauts!

    Project mention: Authorization in Django, how to approach it as a begginer? | | 2021-01-01

    I would suggest token auth as it is stateless, secure and can be used on multiple devices. OAuth/OAuth2 is the industry standard at the moment but you can also use a simple JWT token signature. On top of this, Django REST framework offers a lot of libraries for this purpose e.g. django-rest-framework-simplejwt, django-rest-framework-social-oauth2, django-oauth-toolkit, and more.

  • GitHub repo django-environ

    Django-environ allows you to utilize 12factor inspired environment variables to configure your Django application.
