Heroku Django Starter Template

An utterly fantastic project starter template for Django 1.11.


  • Production-ready configuration for Static Files, Database Settings, Gunicorn, etc.
  • Enhancements to Django's static file serving functionality via WhiteNoise.
  • Latest Python 3.6 runtime environment.

How to Use

To use this project, follow these steps:

  1. Create your working environment.
  2. Install Django ($ pip install django)
  3. Create a new project using this template

Creating Your Project

Using this template to create a new Django app is easy::

$ startproject --template= --name=Procfile helloworld

(If this doesn't work on windows, replace with django-admin)

You can replace helloworld with your desired project name.
