Enhances Django runserver with Werkzeug.

Project description

Django Werkzeug

[![Current version on PyPI](][pypi]

Enhances Django `runserver` with [Werkzeug][].

This project uses [Django Extensions][] under the hood. It "wraps" it, along
with Werkzeug, so you don't have to add an explicit `werkzeug` dependency
to your `requirements.txt` or remember a new command.


Werkzeug and its builtin error page has proven to be indispensable in a number
of Django projects. While Django Extensions is also a great tool, the full
extent of it is not always needed in specific projects.

Also, when committing to Werkzeug, it's convenient to run the `runserver`
instead of learning a new command. This brings newcomers to your team up to
speed without further instruction and doesn't require existing members to
change their muscle memory during their day-to-day.

If you want to use Werkzeug on certain projects, but don't want to keep track
of which ones, this package is for you.


Django Werkzeug requires Django 1.8 or later.


$ pip install django-werkzeug

Then enable it by adding it to `INSTALLED_APPS` in your `` file:



$ python runserver

Or to run Django's classic builtin server, run:

$ python runserver_classic
