‘Django’ was one of the popular Python framework, which can be used to create beautiful dynamic website from scratch. Write less and do more that is the frameworks mean to. You don’t need to start from the beginning, Django will take care of that.
How to get my copy of Django?
Well, it is a free framework free of cost, you can download and use Django 1.6.5 or later along with Python 3.3 or prior version on Windows/Linux/Mac or on almost any Computer OS.
Installing Django on Windows 7 and later
Make sure that you have latest Python version installed on your computer. You can download it from Python.org. Extract the Django .Zip/.tar file, using Winzip or 7zip (preferably C:/, root directory).
Setting Python paths on windows will let you run it from any drive, learn how to.
Let’s install the Django, issue the following command using Power Shell or command prompt (Run->PowerShell).
C:/> CD django1.6.5
C:/>django1.6.5> Python setup.py install
And it will run the python script for installation. All file required will be automatically copied to the Python Lib\site-package folder securely. After the process you can safely delete the extracted folder from the C:\ drive.
Installing Django on Linux
On Linux you have prebuilt Python on it, so no need to install it separately. Just extract Django .tar file and run the setup script.
Verifying the Django installation
Fedora Linux is not meant for everyone, it is for developers and
those who love to learn developing. You can add application using
neat GUI or use dnf[treminal] to search and install packages you needed.
Some ventors supplies tar file which require manually run from terminal. For convenience you can create launchers for them, so that
you can run them as regular applications.
Desktop entries are responsible for showing application menus under
differrnt categories. My Fedora uses GNOME desktop which has Activities
menu, shows favourietes and menus
Where should I place applications files
I recomment you should place application files on usr/share, you need to extract the tar/zip files on home folder then move to
the share folder using following way
In this example we have Typora Markdown Editor, extract the file and open terminal and issue following command
sudo mv Typora-linux-x64 /usr/share
This will place the typora file to the share folder, you can’t directly place or copy without sudo command in /share or application files
