CLI tool to quickstart Django app

Project description

Even though I rarely create new django apps from scratch, I still don’t like initial procedure of creating it, too much steps that can be automated. That’s the purpose of this tool.

What this script does:

  • Creates Django project
  • Creates corresponding apps
  • Creates initial virtualenv (venv)
  • Installs provided dependencies
  • Creates initial requirements.txt
  • Initializes git repository
  • Runs initial migration (using sqlitedb)
  • Creates superuser
  • Shows created application in browser

Download and run the script:

Python version:

Download it from PyPi:

pip3 install create-django-app --user


# show help
create-django-app --help

# create django project
create-django-app -p test_project -a 'test_app1 test_app2' -d requests

# create project without admin user with --noadmin flag
create-django-app -p test_project -a 'test_app1 test_app2' -d requests --noadmin

# don't run server in the end with --nodemo flag
create-django-app -p test_project -a 'test_app1 test_app2' -d requests --nodemo

Bash version:

DEPRECATED: this script does not recieve same updates as the python package, buy still gets the job done. You can download it via wget/curl/whatever you prefer:

curl -O

After that give it executable permission:

chmod +x

And run it:

./ -d foo_project -a 'foo_app bar_app' -d 'requests'
