Django Environment Configuration or Setup

In the early Topic, we have covered the basic steps to set up the virtual environment. Now we are going to learn about the Steps to install the Django Environment into our system.

To install this we have used the Ubuntu Operating system to run the commands and to perform this task.

Earlier we are aware of Django, Its features, and its history. Today we will be learning about setting up the environment for Django into the Ubuntu Operating system.

Django Environment Overview:

Django helps us to build up the light setup on the local system or a computer so that we can start up or task in developing the web application or to do the web development. Now we are going to explain the steps to install Django into the different operating systems or the OS environment.

Installing Django on Linux /MAC OS / Windows

Django Environment Requirements

Before installing Django into our system we need to check whether Python is installed into our system or not and if it is installed then we can follow the above-mentioned steps and move ahead to perform the web development task using Django.

If it is not installed into our system we can go through the following tutorial where we have defined the steps to install the python into the different environments.

Goto: Installation of Python

We also wish you and your family a very Happy Lohri and Makar Sakranti
