django

The Web framework for perfectionists with deadlines. Now on GitHub.

Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design. Thanks for checking it out.

All documentation is in the “docs” directory and online at http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/. If you’re just getting started, here’s how we recommend you read the docs:

* First, read docs/intro/install.txt for instructions on installing Django.

* Next, work through the tutorials in order (docs/intro/tutorial01.txt,
  docs/intro/tutorial02.txt, etc.).

* If you want to set up an actual deployment server, read
  docs/howto/deployment/index.txt for instructions.

* You'll probably want to read through the topical guides (in docs/topics)
  next; from there you can jump to the HOWTOs (in docs/howto) for specific
  problems, and check out the reference (docs/ref) for gory details.

* See docs/README for instructions on building an HTML version of the docs.

Docs are updated rigorously. If you find any problems in the docs, or think they should be clarified in any way, please take 30 seconds to fill out a ticket here:

http://code.djangoproject.com/newticket
