Beget

Beget is a very simple tool to create a default django project. It basically does little more than django-admin.py startproject projectname with the only differences being that it creates the project in a python distribution layout complete with setup.py for ease of installation and creates media and static directories.

The default settings.py is tailored to the author's preferences i.e. TIME_ZONE is set to 'Europe/London'.

Usage

To use beget:

> beget example_project

This will create the following directories:

> tree example_project
example_project
├── example_project
│   ├── __init__.py
│   ├── media
│   ├── settings.py
│   ├── static
│   │   ├── css
│   │   ├── images
│   │   └── js
│   ├── templates
│   └── urls.py
└── setup.py

beget has only one option (excluding --help of course):

> beget -h
Usage: beget [options] projectname

Options:
  -h, --help         show this help message and exit
  -k, --like-krak3n  Create config/common.py instead of settings.py

The -k or --like-krak3n option replaces settings.py with config/common.py as is the way of the krak3n:

> beget --like-krak3n example_project && tree example_project
example_project
├── example_project
│   ├── config
│   │   ├── common.py
│   │   └── __init__.py
│   ├── __init__.py
│   ├── media
│   ├── static
│   │   ├── css
│   │   ├── images
│   │   └── js
│   ├── templates
│   └── urls.py
└── setup.py
