Django Tutorial – Installing Django on Windows

Web Frameworks like Django are becoming a necessity for any web development guys out there, some try before the shoot, some try it for fun.Instead of reading the documentation read this short 5step article.

Step #1 Install Python before Django

if you have not already because Django - The Web Framework for perfectionists is a python baby 😉

To install Python go to Python Download Site and choose the flavor of your choice.

Insure that the executable in bin folder are added to the System Path

  1. Right-click My Computer select Properties.
  2. Select Advanced tab.
  3. Click Environment variables.
  4. Select Path in System Variables add a semicolon(;) at the end and paste the path to the executable i.e c:Python33bin

To test if python is properly installed run this command from command line

> python

Step #2 Download Django

This is the most easy step just download Django from official site and extract it to any folder.

Step #3 Adding Django to pythonpath

Adding django to pythonpath provides a reusable Django framework for all your projects followed from this django tutorial onwards.

Change your cwd to the one where you extracted django and just run the command

> python setup.py install

This will install all the django packages into the python library i.e  in c:Python33Libsite-packages. To test if Django is properly added to python check it with this command

python -c "import django; print(django.get_version())"

 

Step #4 Adding Django to Syspath

Add the django executables in the  path c:Python33Libsite-packagesdjangobin  to system path as per step 1

Step #5 Create your project

Restart the command prompt and then create your project by navigating to the directory where you want to create your project by typing in the following command

> django-admin.py startproject myapp

 

Run your web project by navigating inside your project directory and then typing in

manage.py runserver
