Build a Django Application: Overview
In this section, you’re going to build your Django application. In order to move forward, you’re going to need to have gone through all of the previous section so that your environment is fully set up.
You’re going to learn about development by error messages and develop your example app following the error messages. You’ll build your routes, create a view, create a template, and add Bootstrap to your app.
00:00 Hello, and welcome to Part 3. This is the part where we’re actually going to go ahead and build a Django application—something that we’re going to run. Remember that what do you need in order to proceed is everything that we did in the setup section, in Part 2. You need to have Python installed, you need to have a virtual environment created and activated, and inside of that virtual environment, we installed Django.
00:23 So, that needs to be set up, and you’re going to have to have some text editor or something like an IDE, like PyCharm, that you’re familiar with using. If you have all that, then you’re good to go.
00:43 If you’ve done all that and you’ve got the motivation to move forward, then you’re right here in Part 3. So, let’s get going! In this Part 3, I’m going to introduce something that I call development by error messages.
00:56 So, we’re going to look at Django and develop our example app following the error messages. I’m going to talk a bit about it more in the next video, but just here to get an overview, this is the way that we’re going to approach this project. And in this part, we’re going to create a Django app and do everything that’s necessary to make it work.
01:13 So, we’re going to build out the routes, we’re going to create a view, create a template, connect these together, and we’re also going to add Bootstrap to our app so that we can have some automatic, nicer styling already included. And then finally, we’re going to do a quick recap and outlook for section 4.
