with a custom Django user model

Authentication has always been a gigantic pain in the you-know-where, at least for me. I come from a Node.js, Express.js background, where I used passport.js to handle authentication schemes. I started learning Django and Django Rest Framework (DRF). However, Django (and DRF, for that matter) does a lot of heavy lifting behind the scenes, which is why it seems quite perplexing (again, most likely only to me) to do many things. Not to mention that one of my acquaintances actually said it out loud that:

Django OAuth schemes kinda seem shady at times

And I kind of have to agree…
