“Token Authentication is too complicated. Please Help!”

You’re trying to implement REST Framework Token based Authentication but it is too complicated.

Token Authentication with Django REST Framework just seems too complicated to implement and use. You think, maybe you’ll just go and read the docs but you’re not really sure what the hell they are talking about!

“Why do I keep getting a 403: Forbidden error?”

Maybe you get lucky and Token Authentication is sort of setup correctly but your not sure how to actually use it. You try to POST to your login endpoint with a username and password, but afterwards every request gives you back a 403: Forbidden error. Coming from an understanding of Django, you think, “I obviously need to get a CSRF Token for my POST request. THAT will fix it!”

How confident are you that it will actually fix the problem? HINT: It won’t!

How to get Token Authentication to work with Frontend MVC Framework like Angular?

Trying to use Token Authentication to create a Single-Page Application creates another bag of issues. You’re not sure how to use Angular to create headers or cookies. Then, even when you figure out how to alter your request headers, if you are trying to use your API on a different domain, you still need to figure out how to get past Same-Origin Problems!

There are so many moving parts just to get Token Authentication working with Django REST Framework. This can’t be this complicated, can it? You know Token Authentication MUST be simple to implement but you’re still not confident that you’ll be able to understand any of it!

What if Token Authentication was a SNAP to implement?

What if Token Authentication was a SNAP to implement. You could sit down to work on your application and Token Authentication would be perfectly implemented every time!

  • You’ll get new chapters for FREE! As soon as I update the book, you don’t have to buy the book again, you get these updates absolutely free.

Table of Contents

  • Introduction – I introduce the app that you’re going to build. Tell you a little bit about Token Authentication and how it works. It’s only a couple pages because I want you to get started with the project.
  • Chapter 1: Getting Setup – I show you how to implement Token Authentication and after your done with this chapter, I’ll show you how to test that it does indeed work.
  • Chapter 2: Expiring Tokens – This chapter goes into specifically how you can create tokens that automatically expire after a certain amount of time. This provides a bit of security for your users.
  • Chapter 3: Implementing JSON-P – JSON-P is how you retrieve data using from your API. On separate web apps that run on different domains, you won’t be able to retrieve data from your API. JSON-P is how you can get through this problem.
  • Chapter 4: Creating the Front-end – This chapter goes into the specifics of TypeScript (the language the powers Angular 2.0 and compiles into Javascript). This is where the magic happens. You’ll see how simple Angular 2.0 is and how a small amount of code can create a pretty simple Single Page Application.
  • Chapter 5: Implementing CORS – JSON-P is to GET as CORS is to all the other Request Methods. You have to implement CORS so that users can login and post “Gweets” on our application. At the end of this chapter, you’ll have a working web application that can successfully talk to your REST API.
  • Chapter 6: Final Project – This is the end of the book. A simple review of all the things that you learned! And you’re done!

About the Author

Hi! My Name is Chris Bartos. I have been programming since I was 12 years old. I eventually went to get a degree in Computer Science.

Then, I got a job where I started learning how to make web applications. (A degree in Computer Science doesn’t show you how to make websites). I had to learn how to do all this by myself. It was no simple task to teach myself how to make websites. I made a lot of mistakes. Sometimes, learning was very slow, but over time I learned how to learn new technologies like Django and Django REST Framework as quickly as possible.

I want to teach you how to learn Django and Django REST Framework quicker than you ever thought possible.
