Django is a high-level Python Web framework which follows the model–view–template (MVT) architectural pattern.

Installation

Two packages of Django are currently available in the official repositories. They can be installed with the following packages:

Database driver

If you intend to use a MySQL/MariaDB database as backend, also install the python-mysqlclientAUR package.

Usage

If you wish to start a Django project, use django-admin command

$ django-admin startproject mysite

This will create a mysite directory in your current directory. It will also create a manage.py script, which will let you interact with your project.

More information you will find in the official Django tutorial and Django documentation.
