Pyup brings you automated security and dependency updates used by Google and other organizations. Free for open source projects!
Let's pretend you want to create a Django project called "redditclone". Rather than using
startprojectand 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::
$ cd reddit/ $ ls
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?

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.
If you are using
pyup.io_ to keep your dependencies updated and secure, use the code cookiecutter during checkout to get 15% off every month.
Scattered throughout the Python and HTML of this project are places marked with "your stuff". This is where third-party libraries are to be integrated with your project.
