Create a Django project layout based on Lincoln Loop best practices.
StartProject installs a script which allows the easy creation of a standard Django project layout based on Lincoln Loop standards.
After installing StartProject, simply run the following command (from within the directory in where the new project directory should be created):
The script will prompt for values to replace boilerplate variables with. These variables allow for both the file contents and path names to be customized to this specific project.
If you would prefer to use a custom project template than the one included in this application, create your custom project template directory and call the command script like this:
django-startproject.py --template-dir=/your/custom/template project_name
Two optional files in the root of the project template directory are used to determine the boilerplate variables:
See the files included in the project_template directory of StartProject for an example.
