This will build on the PyEnv / Bash / OSX installation on Mac blog post i wrote some time ago in order to be able to have a set of packages in a virtual environment set only for my Django project. So, lets get started!
The first thing is change into a directory that will hold my project files by running the following
mkdir myapp && cd $_
Just for the sake of versioning my application, i'm going to create a
README.md and initialize my repo:
echo '# My App' >> README.md touch .gitignore git init git add . git commit -m 'Initialize repo'
Now, set a local python version within that directory:
pyenv local 3.6.2
and install virtual environment which is the last step to be able to get started setting up the project:
pip install virtualenv
Now it's time to get my Django app started by creating a project specific virtual environment. Bare in mind we don't want to version this directory so:
virtualenv .env echo '.env' >> .gitignore echo 'db.sqlite3' >> .gitignore echo '*.pyc' >> .gitignore source .env/bin/activate pip install django pip freeze > requirements.txt django-admin.py startproject myapp . chmod +x ./manage.py git commit -m 'Install empty Django project'
And that should do the job! now simply run the initial migration and server:
./manage.py migrate ./manage.py runserver
and go to http://127.0.0.1:8000/ and mission accomplished!
