Enable dynamic redirect after login, by setting LOGIN_REDIRECT_URL to a callable

It's quite a common requirement to redirect to a different page after login, for example depending on some information about the user, or the time of day, etc:

This involves:

  • either rewriting the login() view, which may be a security risk, as it's easy to get wrong, and definitely not DRY;
  • or doing a second redirect from the landing page after login which is inefficient and slow.

I think it would be a very simple change to allow LOGIN_REDIRECT_URL to point to a callable, in django.contrib.auth.views.login:

             if not redirect_to:
                 redirect_to = settings.LOGIN_REDIRECT_URL
+            if callable(redirect_to):
+                redirect_to = redirect_to(request, form.get_user())

I think the way to go is to transform the auth views in class-based views, then it will be easy to subclass and rewrite get_success_url. This is tracked in #17209.
