sets the ``DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE`` environment variable, which gives Django
the Python import path to your :file:`mysite/settings.py` file.
-.. admonition:: Bypassing manage.py
-
- If you'd rather not use :file:`manage.py`, no problem. Just set the
- :envvar:`DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE` environment variable to
- ``mysite.settings``, start a plain Python shell, and set up Django:
-
- .. code-block:: pycon
-
- >>> import django
- >>> django.setup()
-
- If this raises an :exc:`AttributeError`, you're probably using
- a version of Django that doesn't match this tutorial version. You'll want
- to either switch to the older tutorial or the newer Django version.
-
- You must run ``python`` from the same directory :file:`manage.py` is in,
- or ensure that directory is on the Python path, so that ``import mysite``
- works.
-
- For more information on all of this, see the :doc:`django-admin
- documentation </ref/django-admin>`.
-
Once you're in the shell, explore the :doc:`database API </topics/db/queries>`::
>>> from polls.models import Question, Choice # Import the model classes we just wrote.
