Most existing Django apps that address the problem of social authentication unfortunately focus only on one dimension - the social. Most developers end up integrating another app in order to support authentication flows that are locally generated.
This approach creates a development gap between local and social authentication flows. It has remained an issue inspite numerous common scenarios that both require. For example, an e-mail address passed along by an OpenID provider may not be verified. Therefore, prior to hooking up an OpenID account to a local account the e-mail address must be verified. This essentially is one of many use cases that mandate e-mail verification to be present in both worlds.
Integrating both is a humongous and tedious process. It is not as
simple as adding one social authentication app, and one
local account registration app to your
This inadequacy is the reason for this project's existence -- to offer a fully integrated authentication app that allows for both local and social authentication, with flows that just work, beautifully !
