Django admin expects users' passwords to be entered as SHA-1 hashes in the format [algo]$[salt]$[hexdigest]. Here is a tool which automates calculating the hashes on the client side.

You need to

  • use the Firefox browser
  • install the Greasemonkey extension
  • install the djangopasswordhasher.user.js user script


  • works on all standard Django admin sites
  • nothing to install on the server side


  • needs the extension on the browser
