Simple JWT

Jazzband GitHub Actions

A JSON Web Token authentication plugin for the Django REST Framework.

Simple JWT provides a JSON Web Token authentication backend for the Django REST Framework. It aims to cover the most common use cases of JWTs by offering a conservative set of default features. It also aims to be easily extensible in case a desired feature is not present.


This project borrows code from the Django REST Framework as well as concepts from the implementation of another JSON web token library for the Django REST Framework, django-rest-framework-jwt. The licenses from both of those projects have been included in this repository in the “licenses” directory.
