I’ve found myself confused in the mire of code deployed when a Django site is pulled down from Azure, so Ryan Joy and myself have stripped it to the bare essentials for a code challenge during DjangoCon.
I found this project to be a great way to learn how Django works and how to get into web development while making your changes actually exist on the internet.
We’ve made a number of repos, but the best one to get started with is MinimalStaticDjango
The main parts of the app can be found in app and djangocon and these are standard django.
The deployment specific code includes:
With this site (and quite a bit of bootstrap), you can create and deploy beautiful static sites.
And with a great idea and a database you can extend this basic structure to any kind of Django website.
Look for another example in the coming months after a hackathon or two!
Happy to answer any questions,
