Usage

Let's pretend you want to create a Django project called "redditclone". Rather than using

startproject
and then editing the results to include your name, email, and various configuration issues that always get forgotten until the worst possible moment, get cookiecutter_ to do all the work.

First, get Cookiecutter. Trust me, it's awesome::

$ pip install "cookiecutter>=1.7.0"

Now run it against this repo::

$ cookiecutter https://github.com/pydanny/cookiecutter-django

You'll be prompted for some values. Provide them, then a Django project will be created for you.

Warning: After this point, change 'Daniel Greenfeld', 'pydanny', etc to your own information.

Answer the prompts with your own desired options_. For example::

Enter the project and take a look around::

Create a git repo and push it there::

$ git init
$ git add .
$ git commit -m "first awesome commit"
$ git remote add origin [email protected]:pydanny/redditclone.git
$ git push -u origin master

Now take a look at your repo. Don't forget to carefully look at the generated README. Awesome, right?

For Readers of Two Scoops of Django

You may notice that some elements of this project do not exactly match what we describe in chapter 3. The reason for that is this project, amongst other things, serves as a test bed for trying out new ideas and concepts. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't, but the end result is that it won't necessarily match precisely what is described in the book I co-authored.

Not Exactly What You Want?

This is what I want. It might not be what you want. Don't worry, you have options:

If you have differences in your preferred setup, I encourage you to fork this to create your own version. Once you have your fork working, let me know and I'll add it to a 'Similar Cookiecutter Templates' list here. It's up to you whether or not to rename your fork.

If you do rename your fork, I encourage you to submit it to the following places:

  • cookiecutter_ so it gets listed in the README as a template.
