Django - custom user model

Django Tip:

Use a custom user model when starting a project

When starting a new project, set up a custom user model. This model behaves just like the default user model, but you'll be able to customize it in the future.

That should be done before creating or running any migrations.

# users/

from django.contrib.auth.models import AbstractUser

class CustomUser(AbstractUser):

# users/

from django.contrib import admin
from django.contrib.auth.admin import UserAdmin

from .models import CustomUser, UserAdmin)


AUTH_USER_MODEL = "users.CustomUser"
