1. 1

    This week:

    • Building a token authentication mechanism and letting api’s accept either that or the the Authorization header while authenticating users. The aim to have a full fledged user management system (akin to spring security/django auth). Shifting our existing authentication flows to either of these is pretty hard, hence kind of re-implementing the wheel (learning things too!)
    • I integrated react-redux into my django website last week. Now need to start slowly shifting the pages from django to react.
    • Thinking about writing a blog post on Django internals (request resolution, authentication, view logic, response/exception handling). Might not be able to do it this week, but have added it to the list.
