Hey everyone. I was wondering what is the best way to go when one wants to use Django with DynamoDB. Any advice or example code?

Dumb question, is there any way to grab the password when creating a new user as plaintext when using the builtin stuff? Even if its through the admin interface as users will not be able to self register, but I have a registration form that the sales people use to sign clients up. I need to pass it to python-gpg to generate the key. I then associate the fingerprint with the user, and export the private key to a file that gets encrypted as well. I then download that private key, decrypt it, and save it a memory stick that gets given to the client.

There will be no saving of the password in plaintext before anybody worries.

I am thinking of extending the User model. Is there a signal I can use? My issue is that django basically hashes it immediately, and I can't figure out how to intercept it before it gets hashed.

Hi channel, I'm kind of lost with docs, and I'm wondering if anybody here knows how to pass extra context to delete_selected admin view method? I have been searching everywhere and I'm desperate to hear some ideas, thanks in advance.
