Here is how we create a new Django project quickly while letting cookiecutter to do all the work.

To get started we assume the following dependencies


Get Cookiecutter

Now run it against this repo:

$ cookiecutter

You’ll be prompted to provide some values for your project.

Enter the project

$ cd wagtail_project/

Create a git repo and push it there:

$ git init
$ git add .
$ git commit -m "first awesome commit"
$ git remote add origin
$ git push -u origin master

To create your project’s virtual environment, install all pip dependencies, create the development database, run migrations and load initial data to database, install front-end dependencies and finally start the development server for you run
