django-auth-remember 0.3

Django app for remember-me functionality (using a token)
django-auth-remember is a Django app for remember-me functionality (using a token).

Add the auth_remember authentication backend to django:

AUTHENTICATION_BACKENDS = (
 'django.contrib.auth.backends.ModelBackend',
 'auth_remember.backend.AuthRememberBackend',
)


Add the remember middleware in your settings, right after AuthenticationMiddleware:

MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES = (
 ...
 'django.contrib.auth.middleware.AuthenticationMiddleware',
 'auth_remember.middleware.AuthRememberMiddleware',
 ...
)


Add auth_remember to INSTALLED_APPS:

INSTALLED_APPS = (
 'auth_remember',
)


Set the cookie name and expire time (optional):

AUTH_REMEMBER_COOKIE_NAME = 'remember_token'
AUTH_REMEMBER_COOKIE_AGE = 86400 * 28 # 4 weeks by default


Set the expire time of the session to browser close (optional):

SESSION_EXPIRE_AT_BROWSER_CLOSE = True

To remember a user add the following code to your authentication handler:

from auth_remember import remember_user
remember_user(request, user)


Use the user.is_fresh attribute to test if the user is fresh:

{% if user.is_fresh %}
 This user session is fresh
{% else %}
 This user session is NOT fresh
{% endif %}


Under the hood auth_remember uses the session var AUTH_REMEMBER_FRESH to indicate if the user session is fresh. The name of the session var can be changed by setting the AUTH_REMEMBER_SESSION_KEY in you're settings file.
