I'm working on an intranet django project (not using GAE) for a company that uses Google Apps for login. So I'd like my users to be able to log in to my django project using their google accounts login. OpenID seems appropriate, although maybe Oauth might work too?
I see a lot of similarly named libraries out there to connect django's auth system to external login systems:
- django-authopenid – http://bitbucket.org/benoitc/django-authopenid
- django-openid – http://github.com/simonw/django-openid
- django-openidauth – http://code.google.com/p/django-openid-auth/
- django-oauth – http://bitbucket.org/david/django-oauth
Here's what I'd like to do with the integration: Have users login with their google accounts, instead of the native django system. Keep django's permissions model for things like the admin system. So I think that means automatically creating a new user record in django the first time a new account we haven't seen before logs in.
Can anyone with experience using any of these projects advise me on which would work best? Or just advice on which are most active / functional if you've tried them? Thanks!
