Creating a Custom Authentication Backend using Django

Today I have posted a new tutorial on djangorocks.com ‘Creating a Custom Authentication Backend‘.

The example created allows you to login to your Django application using your IMAP mail server to check your username & password. ¬†Perfect if you are creating a webmail client or address book – and more I’m sure.

The tutorial is not as long as I would have hoped, but its rather difficult to add to when it really is quite a simple thing to implement.  Hope it helps.
