Set Up Your Development Environment: Overview
In this section, you’ll set up a good development environment so you can get started building your Django app. Before you continue, make sure you have the following:
- Python 3.x
- A text editor or an IDE
- Basic knowledge of how to use the CLI
00:00 Hello, and welcome to Part 2 of this Django tutorial. Here, we will set up a good development environment so you can get started building your Django app. At first, before we can continue, just make sure that you have these things set up.
00:15 You need to have a version of Python 3 installed. Then, you need to have a text editor or an integrated development environment that you’re familiar with using. For example, I’m going to be using PyCharm, but you can use anything else that you want to.
00:37 So, let’s start off with our first video about this section. In Part 2, it’s all about setting up your development environment so that you can start working on the Django project. For this, we will be using PyCharm.
00:59 We will create a virtual environment that we will use to install Django, and then we will create a Django project in there, and that’s a wrap for this first part. So in this part, the idea is to get us all the way from just getting started to the beginning of having a set-up Django project that we’ll start to work with. So, let’s get going!
