Is there a ready way to use the Django admin page without any form of authentication? I know I can use this method, but that was for Django 1.3. Are there any changes that would let me do this more easily in Django 1.6?
My main motivation for this is that I want to have as few database tables as possible, and I am using this only locally, so there is no need for any sort of authentication (I'm only ever running the server on localhost anyways).
Create a module
from django.contrib.auth.models import User class Middleware(object): def process_request(self, request): request.user = User.objects.filter()
MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES in your
You can change
User.objects.filter() to something else if you want a particular user.
In response to your comment: yes. Try this:
class User: is_superuser = True is_active = True is_staff = True id = 1 def return_true(*args, **kwargs): return True User.has_module_perms = return_true User.has_perm = return_true class Middleware(object): def process_request(self, request): request.user = User()
But if you use any apps that depend on the auth app, you're going to have a bad time.
