Django is a open source web application framework written in Python. Django’s primary goal is to ease the creation of complex, database-driven websites.


Django at Glance gives an idea about django development.


Django is based on python. Follow the instructions in the Installation section if not already done. These instructions install python but also Django as well as many useful Django components.


The installation is done in the ScribeEnv virtual environment. Make sure to execute the following command:

workon ScribeEnv

The shell prompt should then start with (ScribeEnv) meaning that you are working in the proper virtual environment.

Launching Django

If you want to check that Django is installed you can try the following:

workon ScribeEnv
python -c "import django; print(django.get_version())"
django-admin --version


In the open source community Django is reknown for the quality of its documentation. After reading Django at Glance the best way to start is to read the Django Tutorial.
