More information at: Contribute using: Edge Dev Tools 🍰

Recommended Installation (with pipenv)

  1. $ pip install --user --upgrade pipenv (Install pipenv system-wide or locally but outside a virtualenv)

  2. $ mkdir my_proj (choose a better name than my_proj for your project)

  3. $ startproject --template= --extension=py,md,html,env my_proj .

    If you get an SSL error, then download the zip file and mention it after --template=, like this: startproject --template=~/Downloads/ --extension=py,md,html,env my_proj .

  4. $ pipenv install --dev

  5. $ pipenv shell

  6. $ cp src/my_proj/settings/local.sample.env src/my_proj/settings/local.env (or rename this file)

  7. $ cd src

  8. $ python migrate

  9. $ python createsuperuser

  10. $ python runserver

If you need to keep requirements.txt updated then run

pipenv lock --requirements > requirements/base.txt
echo "-r base.txt" > requirements/development.txt
pipenv lock --requirements --dev >> requirements/development.txt

{{ project_name }}

{{ project_name }} is a short description. It is built with Python using the Django Web Framework.

This project has the following basic apps:

  • App1 (short desc)
  • App2 (short desc)
  • App3 (short desc)


Quick start

To set up a development environment quickly, first install Python 3. It comes with virtualenv built-in. So create a virtual env by:

1. `$ python3 -m venv {{ project_name }}`
2. `$ . {{ project_name }}/bin/activate`

Install all dependencies:

pip install -r requirements.txt

Run migrations:

python migrate
