How to automatically log in users in with Django

Django does not automatically log in users after signing in, but achieving this functionality only takes a few extra lines of code.

Notes

I’m using Class-based Views. To automatically log in a user, we have to override the form_valid() method of the CreateView class. The form_valid() method is the last block of code to be run before redirecting the user to the success_url.
