Installation guide

The 3.0.1 release of django-registration supports Django 1.11, 2.0, 2.1, and 2.2 on the following Python versions:

  • Django 1.11 supports Python 2.7, 3.4, 3.5 and 3.6.
  • Django 2.0 supports Python 3.4, 3.5, 3.6 and 3.7.
  • Django 2.1 supports Python 3.5, 3.6 and 3.7.
  • Django 2.2 supports Python 3.5, 3.6, and 3.7.

Normal installation

The preferred method of installing django-registration is via pip, the standard Python package-installation tool. If you don’t have pip, instructions are available for how to obtain and install it. If you’re using a supported version of Python, pip should have come bundled with your installation of Python.

Once you have pip, type:

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.


Python 2

If you are using Python 2, you should install the latest Django 1.11 release before installing django-registration. Later versions of Django no longer support Python 2, and installation will fail. To install a compatible version of Django for Python 2, run pip install “Django>=1.11,<2.0”.

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 <>. If you have git installed, you can obtain a copy of the repository by typing:

git clone

From there, you can use git commands to check out the specific revision you want, and perform an “editable” install (allowing you to change code as you work on it) by typing:

pip install -e .
