Django Book Revival
A revival of Django Book, the comprehensive guide to Django.
I learned Django from this book originally and felt it was a great resource. Now that Django has (finally) moved on, it would be great to bring the book back up to date.
A current work in progress. If you'd like to help, please do. There's plenty of work to be done!
The goal is to overhaul this book with Django 1.5 compatibility and hopefully keep it up to date with Django 1.5 and beyond!
- Update content and project idioms to be Django 1.5 compatible
- Approach Django advice with a pragmatic attitude, that respects the times and tools currently available.
- Remove deprecated Django 1.2 and 1.3 content/idioms
- Work toward a release that is peer reviewed before Django 1.6 launches
- Repeat for Django 1.7 and beyond!
The latest version is always available at ReadTheDocs: http://django-book.readthedocs.org/en/latest/
See the project issues for more current status: https://github.com/askedrelic/django-book/issues
This book is a fork from the original source code used in the Djagno 1.0 book. Multiple forks exist and code/advice may be in different states of progress.
- https://github.com/askedrelic/django-book is a fork with the goal of updating the Django Book with pragmatic advice from current Django practices. It lives at http://django-book.readthedocs.org/en/latest/index.html
- https://github.com/mariuz/django-book is the original fork, which was created by importing the original Djagno Book SVN code repository and history. (AskedRelic's version was forked from this version).
- https://github.com/jacobian/djangobook.com is a newer fork, from the original author of the Django Book. Code/ideas from this fork have tried to be incorporated in AskedRelic's fork, but it is a seperate entity. It lives at https://github.com/jacobian/djangobook.com
