This package extends the functionality of the templer code generation system. It builds upon the functionality of templer.core, and depends on that package.

Templer.django-project-app provides basic support for creating Django applications within an existing project like the startproject command but in a more useful way.

Getting the code

For the latest stable version of the package use easy_install or pip:

$ easy_install templer.django-project-app
$ pip install templer.django-project-app

You could also retrieve the development version of the module like this:

$ pip install -e git://github.com/Fantomas42/templer.django-project-app.git#egg=templer.django-project-app

Creating applications

As with the parent package, templer.core, creating packages using templer.django-project-app template is accomplished by using the templer script. The script is invoked thus:

$ templer django_project_app

This will create a basic application skeleton related to your project, containing the models.py, urls.py and views.py which may be edited to taste.

If your application is not located within a project, you can also use the script but with a different template name, like this:

$ templer django_app



  • Add django_app template for application created outside projects.


  • Pep8 on the code.
  • Fix model's meta verbose names.


  • Using class-based views.
  • Adding structure for management commands.
  • Completing the default model and admin classes.


  • Creation of a tests.py file.
  • The model name is now configurable.
