Django CRUD Example Apps

This is a small Django project to demonstrate Django CRUD functionality, it consist of 3 small applications:

  • books_cbv: Implement CRUD using CBV (Class Based Views).
  • books_fbv: Implement CRUD using FBV (Function Based Views).
  • books_fbv_user: add user interaction to books_fbv example.

Install Required Packages

The Django CRUD project only need a single Python package "Django", it was built and tested with Django 2.x version. To install it use the following command:

pip install -r requirements.txt

Django 2 requires Python 3, if you need help setting up Python 3 on your machine you can consult DigitalOcean great documentation on How To Install and Set Up a Local Programming Environment for Python 3

Running the Application

Before running the application we need to create the needed DB tables:

./ migrate

Now you can run the development web server:

./ runserver

To access the applications go to the URL http://localhost:8000/

I need a user and password to access "books_fbv_user"

Yes, the "books_fbv_user" demonstrate how CRUD can work with Django users, and you do need to create a user to test it, you can create a user using the following command:

./ createsuperuser

To create a normal user (non super user), you must login to the admin page and create it: http://localhost:8000/admin/
