Building a basic blog with Django in Python
As I learn Django, the more I like Django.
I built a very basic blog structure using the Django web framework. I really really like Django now ;)
How to get running
Clone the repo
git clone https://gitlab.com/abvavgjeremy/django_blog.git
Change to the repo directory
Create a virtualenv
virtualenv -p python3 venv
Activate the virtualenv
Install the requirements
pip install -r requirements.txt
Change in to the project directory
The site is set for a postgresql database backend and is expecting that.
Setup a Postgresql server and use the following to create your test database
Postgresql Commands: Create the user and database, then give access to database CREATE USER blog WITH PASSWORD 'blog'; CREATE DATABASE blog; GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON DATABASE blog to blog;
mysite/settings.py starting at line 99 to add your DB settings.
Comment out the Postgresql lines and uncomment the SQLlite DB lines 85-91 in order to just have a file based DB [Go with this if you are just testing]
Make migrations and migrate
python manage.py makemigrations python manage.py migrate
If that works create a super user
python manage.py createsuperuser
Run the dev server
python manage.py runserver
Open your browser and look at the blog:
Expand and build upon this.
