Django Allauth offers a comprehensive and adaptable authentication framework for Django, featuring a suite of views, forms, and templates tailored for user authentication, registration, and account management. In this guide, we'll delve into the steps required to implement user authentication in your Django app with the Django Allauth package.

User Sign Up/In with Email Address

We've pre-configured email-based sign-up functionality for immediate use.

  • Navigate to https://<yourdomain>.com/accounts/signup/ to access the sign-up page.
  • Input your email and password to register.
  • Upon registration, a confirmation email will be sent to verify your email address.
  • Should the confirmation email not arrive within a minute, please check your spam folder or the Mailgun logs, as Mailgun is the email backend we've configured.

The confirmation email will resemble the following:
