I don’t really know how to “signal” django developers for a request of improvement, this seems the most appropriate place.
I would just like to ask to build/why there is not a section of the docs dedicated to the super super classical two step user registration: form + one time link sent via email.
I mean there is a lot third party stuff for this (allauth ?), and also very good guides (eg : https://medium.com/@frfahim/django-registration-with-confirmation-email-bb5da011e4ef, https://simpleisbetterthancomplex.com/tutorial/2016/08/24/how-to-create-one-time-link.html )
it would be nice to have an organic guide on it on the official page. Because it’s not just the code bits, it’s also about explaining a bit how to use the PasswordResetTokenGenerator class, why such a potent class is extended with a pair of custom methods in every guide and has not all the methods needed out of the box, how to use the methods for uid encode-decode, the mechanism (if any) that makes a link one time use, whether inactive users are conserved or dumped from db after some time…stuff like that. It’d be nice to have a nice, organic tutorial/topic guide. Not necessairly improve the django-code related part: if there is some standard piece of code that must be written every time, great, but it’s good to know what to do.
If I have to present this request somewhere else please let me
