Base Django Application for MoJ Gov

Project description

This can be used as a base to build MoJ Django applications. It includes some useful Django packages along with the template. It also includes flake8 code style test.


  • Python 3.5 (can be installed using brew install python3)


Install via pypi

pip install django-gov


govuk_template Django template and static directory are included in the package. You can extend the GovUK Template directly

{% extends 'govuk_template/base.html' %}

You can also download the latest govuk_template taball and extract the contentents to a directory of you choice

./ update_gov_template -d /path/to/directory/to/unpack/

This will add the templates and static directories from the latest release of govuk_template to the directory passed as -d

You can include the default settings for all the included apps above by including the default settings in your app file

from django_gov.settings import *

You can include the urls for the healthcheck endpoints

url(r'^', include('django_gov.urls'))


If you include the whole default settings, this will add flake8 code style tests to the directory you run your apps.

You can add a setup.cfg file containing your flake8 settings to the base directory of your app.
