`dj cmd` is a shortcut for Django's `python` commands.

Project description

License Build Status Latest PyPI version Number of PyPI downloads Supports Wheel format

Tired of typing long Django commands like python runserver? Just

pip install dj-cmd

and then

dj r

from any project’s directory.


  • saves typing
  • automatically locates Django’s script in the current or parent directories
  • works great with virtualenv, even on Windows


List of command aliases is a matter of personal taste, so go ahead and adjust the config or fork the project and add yours to the file.

Predefined shortcuts include:

  • r or run - runserver
  • any valid command

Config file

Command aliases can be specified in a config file.

If a .djcmd or .dj.ini config file is present in the user’s home directory or in the base directory, it is used to populate the list of command aliases.

Example of the .djcmd config file:



cs=collectstatic --noinput



Put it in your home or in the base directory of your project.


dj-cmd is released under the BSD license.
