Vim-Django is a ViM script that helps manage a django app(s). It has wrapping's
django-admin.py, your projects
manage.py and some helper
commands. It also has some quick ways to find templates, edit related files
in a app, create new apps, and help manage django while using ViM.
DjangoAdmin will run any command through the
DjangoManage will run the management command for the project
DjangoProjectActivate will activate the project. This will go through
g:django_projects and find all the django projects. It will also
DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE in your environment and the directory
where the settings file is stored in your
DjangoCreateApp will create a new app under your projects base. It will
autocomplete the path. It just needs is a python path such as,
colinbits.apps.new_app this will be created in the folder colinbits,
apps, then run the
django-admin.py to create the app there.
There are mappings for easily editing related django files while working on a
app. They all can be changed if you don't like how they are currently mapped.
There are mappings for (v|views), (u|urls), (a|admin),
and (t|tests). If you want to remap these you can call the function
django#apps#edit('name_of_file.py', 'split') and it will open up
the file it fines in a split.
g:django_projects is where your django projects are located.
g:django_activate_virtualenv when true will activate a virtualenv that
starts with the same name. An example being. colinbits, is the site, and the
virtualenv being colinbits.com.
Custom Activation of Projects
Since not everyone uses the default settings file vim-django will allow you to
add a custom function to activate any project. In your vimrc you can define a
ActivateProject it needs to accept one argument. From here
you can have it activate the project.
Working with other Scripts
g:django_activate_nerdtree when set to 1 will launch nerdtree when
activating the django project.
g:django_activate_virtualenv when set to 1 will activate the virtual
env that starts with the same name.
I recommend using pathogen or vundle to install this script. Else, you can
django.vim in the plug-ins directory. This script does require
python to be compiled in.
let g:django_projects = '~/Projects' "Sets all projects under project let g:django_project_container = 'source' "Inside of these folders look for source let g:django_activate_virtualenv = 1 "Try to activate the associated virtualenv let g:django_activate_nerdtree = 1 "Try to open nerdtree at the project root.

- I actully reccomend installing vim-virtualenv
