Effective Django

This is the repository for the text Effective Django, an ongoing work in progress by Nathan Yergler. The sample code is maintained in the effective-django-tutorial repository.

Effective Django is authored using ReStructured Text and Sphinx. If you're interested in building HTML, PDF, ePub, or other generated formats, you can do so by:

  1. If you want to build PDF or ePub output, make sure LaTeX is installed on your machine. If you only care about HTML output, you can skip this step.

    For Macs, it is recommended you use MacTeX

    $ brew install Caskroom/cask/mactex

    If you're building on Ubuntu, you should install the texlive and texlive-latex-extra packages.

    $ sudo apt-get install texlive texlive-latex-extra
  2. Check out this repository:

    $ git clone --recursive

    Note that in order to build Effective Django, the sample code must be cloned into the src submodule. Using --recursive will accomplish that.

  3. Create a virtualenv and install the dependencies:

    $ virtualenv .
    $ . bin/activate
    $ pip install -r requirements.txt
  4. Run make:

    $ make all

    The output will be in the _build sub-directory.

    To only build HTML, specify the target explicitly:

    $ make html

Run make without any parameters for a list of possible targets.
