modulenotfounderror no module named ‘django-allauth’

django-allauth is an integrated set of Django applications dealing with account authentication, registration, management, and third-party (social) account authentication. It is one of the most popular authentication modules due to its ability to handle both local and social logins.

The Python ModuleNotFoundError: No module named ‘django-allauth’ occurs when we forget to install the django-allauth module before importing it or installed it in an incorrect environment. To solve the error, install the module by running the pip install django-allauth command.

Open your terminal in your project’s root directory and install the django-allauth module.

# 👇️ in a virtual environment or using Python 2
pip install django-allauth

# 👇️ for python 3 (could also be pip3.10 depending on your version)
pip3 install django-allauth

# 👇️ if you get permissions error
sudo pip3 install django-allauth

# 👇️ if you don’t have pip in your PATH environment variable
python -m pip install django-allauth

# 👇️ for python 3 (could also be pip3.10 depending on your version)
python3 -m pip install django-allauth

# 👇️ for Anaconda
conda install -c conda-forge django-allauth

If your interested in knowing more about this django-allauth python module then you can check out this tutorial at DigitalOcean’s site How To Authenticate Django Apps using django-allauth this tutorial is written by Fredrick Adhing’a and provides a pretty good walkthrough of functionality of this module.

Or if your not interested in going through details of django-allauth module by yourself and want someone to walk you through details of this module. Then you can watch following videos.

The Python error “ModuleNotFoundError: No module named django-allauth” occurs for multiple reasons:

  1. Not having the django-allauth package installed by running pip install django-allauth.
  2. Installing the package in a different Python version than the one you’re using.
  3. Installing the package globally and not in your virtual environment.
  4. Your IDE running an incorrect version of Python.
  5. Naming your module django-allauth.py which would shadow the official module.
  6. Declaring a variable named django-allauth which would shadow the imported variable.

If the error persists, get your Python version and make sure you are installing the package using the correct Python version.

# 👇️ Checking version of python
python –version

For example, my Python version is 3.10.4

So I would install the django-allauth package with pip3.10 install django-allauth

pip3.10 install django-allauth

# 👇️ if you get permissions error use pip3 (NOT pip3.X)
sudo pip3 install django-allauth

Notice that the version number corresponds to the version of pip I’m using.

If the PATH for pip is not set up on your machine, replace pip with python3 -m pip.

# 👇️ make sure to use your version of Python, e.g. 3.10
python3 -m pip install django-allauth

If the “No module named django-allauth” error persists, try restarting your IDE and development server / script.

You can check if you have the django-allauth package installed by running the pip show django-allauth command.

# 👇️ check if you have django-allauth installed
pip3 show django-allauth

# 👇️ if you don’t have pip setup in PATH
python3 -m pip show django-allauth

The pip show django-allauth command will either state that the package is not installed or show a bunch of information about the package, including the location where the package is installed.

If the package is not installed, make sure your IDE is using the correct version of Python.

If you are using a virtual environment, make sure you are installing django-allauth in your virtual environment and not globally.

You can try creating a virtual environment if you don’t already have one.

# 👇️ use correct version of Python when creating VENV
python3 -m venv venv

# 👇️ activate on Unix or MacOS
source venv/bin/activate

# 👇️ activate on Windows (cmd.exe)
venv\Scripts\activate.bat

# 👇️ activate on Windows (PowerShell)
venv\Scripts\Activate.ps1

# 👇️ install django-allauth in virtual environment
pip install django-allauth

Your virtual environment will use the version of Python that was used to create it.

If the error persists, make sure you haven’t named a module in your project as django-allauth.py because that would shadow the original django-allauth module.

You also shouldn’t be declaring a variable named django-allauth as that would also shadow the original module.

If the error is not resolved, try to uninstall the django-allauth package and then install it.

# 👇️ check if you have django-allauth installed
pip3 show django-allauth

# 👇️ if you don’t have pip set up in PATH
python3 -m pip show django-allauth

# 👇️ uninstall django-allauth
pip3 uninstall django-allauth

# 👇️ if you don’t have pip set up in PATH
python3 -m pip uninstall django-allauth

# 👇️ install django-allauth
pip3 install django-allauth

# 👇️ if you don’t have pip set up in PATH
python3 -m pip install django-allauth

Try restarting your IDE and development server/script.

You can also try to upgrade the version of the django-allauth package.

pip3 install django-allauth –upgrade

# 👇️ if you don’t have pip set up in PATH
python3 -m pip install django-allauth –upgrade
