Before installing django-registration, you’ll need to have a copy of Django already installed. For information on obtaining and installing Django, consult the Django download page, which offers convenient packaged downloads and installation instructions.
The 2.3 release of django-registration supports Django 1.8, 1.9, 1.10 and 1.11, on the following Python versions:
- Django 1.8 supports Python 2.7, 3.3, 3.4 and 3.5.
- Django 1.9 supports Python 2.7, 3.4 and 3.5.
- Django 1.10 supports Python 2.7, 3.4 and 3.5.
- Django 1.11 supports Python 2.7, 3.4, 3.5 and 3.6.
It is expected that django-registration 2.3 will work without modification on Python 3.6 once it is released.
Although Django 1.8 supported Python 3.2 at the time of its release, the Python 3.2 series has reached end-of-life, and as a result support for Python 3.2 has been dropped from django-registration.
The preferred method of installing django-registration is via
pip, the standard Python package-installation tool. If you don’t
pip, instructions are available for how to obtain and
install it. If
you’re using Python 2.7.9 or later (for Python 2) or Python 3.4 or
later (for Python 3),

pip install django-registration
If you don’t have a copy of a compatible version of Django, this will also automatically install one for you, and will install a third-party library required by some of django-registration’s validation code.
Installing from a source checkout¶
If you want to work on django-registration, you can obtain a source checkout.
The development repository for django-registration is at <https://github.com/ubernostrum/django-registration>. If you have git installed, you can obtain a copy of the repository by typing:
