djtpl is a rather opinionated start to a new Django project. It includes a few things so that you don’t have to worry about dealing with them in order to get up and running.
- Project structure including templates area, static files area (css and js), and test suite
- CSS and JS minifier (for development and production)
- Base HTML template based on the HTML5 boilerplate
- Some Django apps pre-installed
The goal is to get a new Django project up and running as quickly as possible, without having to fiddle with a lot of configurations or directory structuring each time.
You’ll need virtualenv pre-installed.
In the above example,
my_project can be replaced by whatever you want your project to be called.
Next, take a look at the pre-configured features offered in djtpl.
