djtemplate an opinionated django template
I’ve created a number of Django projects now and the most frustrating thing jumping between projects is inconsistencies in the project layout. So, finally I set out to solve this problem.
It’s called djtemplate and its located here:
It’s README contains instructions on how to use it, but basically, you do something like this (make sure you’re using Django 1.4+):
django-admin.py startproject --template=https://github.com/dlamotte/djtemplate/tarball/master myprojectname
I didn’t suspect it’d take me very long to setup this template honestly, but after doing it and spending the better part of a day plus a few hours, I noticed that even a basic setup like this actually takes quite a bit of time. I’m hoping this template makes my projects much more consistent along with saving me such time in setting up new projects. I have to say, I find putting the pieces together for a new project is very tedious. Now, it’ll be a breeze.
Maybe others will find it useful (or at least as a base for your own personal template). Let me know if you do!blog comments powered by Disqus
