Create the Django Superuser Account

Give Feedback

The next step in building our app is to create our superuser account. Django comes with “batteries included” and one of those included batteries is an authentication system. Before we can take advantage of this useful feature, we have to set up an administrative account with full privileges. Django calls this the superuser account, and we can create it with a manage.py command, specifically createsuperuser.
