Django as an Authentication Server
5 points by pandichef 5 days ago | hide | past | web | favorite | 5 comments
I kept facing the same problem with Django projects. I had a common set of users for multiple projects. A friend recommended I use AWS Cognito to authenticate users, but it seemed absurd that Django couldn't act as an authentication/authorization server out-of-the-box. So I rolled out my own solution: https://github.com/pandichef/djangito I'd love to get some feedback on this and/or find contributors to help. Thanks!

You could have used keycloak for that. The bonus is that you get a ton of extra features for free too.

Thanks for mentioning keycloak, I didn't know it existed. I wonder how it stacks up against auth0 or AWS cognito.

My team is in the middle of implementing keycloak. Some of the more advanced use cases have been difficult, strictly due to the patchy documentation.

It's more like a self hosted auth0, I think. I'm not very familiar with cognito.
