Five Minutes Technology - Django

 

If you are a django developer, you know that the framework doesn’t support NoSQL databases directly.

There’s a spin-off NoSQL-django framework but that project is not in-sync with the core django project. The NoSQL-django project still uses django 1.x version whereas django has officially released 2.1.3 version.

Setting up the environment:

If you don’t have python installed, get it installed from www.python.org

 

Install MongoDB from https://www.mongodb.com/download-center?jmp=nav

 

Make sure you have python in your path. You can check it by opening command prompt / terminal and typing

 
 
 
python –V
 
 
 
 

 

Getting started with django

If you want to run your django project in a virtual environment, you need to install python’s virtual environment.

To do so, open command prompt or terminal and type

[ If you don't want a virtual environment, skip to installing django ]

 
 
 
pip install virtualenvwrapper-win
 
 
 
 

 

If you are not already in your django root directory, go to the project directory or create the project directory.

 
 
 
mkdir django
 
 
cd django
 
 
 

 

Create your virtual environment

 
 
 
mkvirtualenv chillzeeProject
 
 
 

 

Install django

 
 
 
pip install django
