Sample installable django app

Project description

This is sample code used in the Real Python article [Writing an Installable Django App](???). The article describes how to take an app from an existing Django project and make it a stand-alone installable package avilable on PyPI.

Installable App

This app models a list of items on a receipt. Each item has a description and a cost. A receipt may reference multiple items.

This app can be installed and used in your django project by:

$ pip install realpython-django-receipts

Edit your file to include ‘receipts’ in the INSTALLED_APPS listing.



Edit your project file to import the URLs:

url_patterns = [

    path('receipts/', include('receipts.urls')),

Finally, add the models to your database:

$ ./ makemigrations receipts

The “project” Branch

The master branch contains the final code for the PyPI package. There is also a project branch which shows the “before” case – the Django project before the app has been removed.
