Before you start the Django app, you would have to create file under Abies -> settings -> This file consists of the following

SECRET_KEY = '{{ Your Secret Key }}'# Enter your 50 character secret key

Use 1.5.1 to generate the key.

2.5.1 Generating keys in Django style

Using Django's crypto package, you can generate random 50 character long key.

from __future__ import print_function
from django.utils.crypto import get_random_string

chars = 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz0123456789!@#$%^&*(-_=+)'
SECRET_KEY = get_random_string(50, chars)
