django-project-skeleton is my skeleton for Django projects. It provides a directory structure for Django projects during development and deployment. This structure is based on research and own experience of developing Django apps.

Please note: This is my skeleton and is developed to fit my very own needs for new Django projects. Please feel free to modify it to your own requirements but be aware that no changes will be made, that I do not consider usefull.

Additional note: As of this writing, Django 1.11 is used. So I can only guarantee that this is working with this version.

Notable Features

  • prepared directory structure
  • modular settings with sane default values
  • prepared sample configuration for Apache2-deployment with mod_wsgi
  • including .gitignore-files to help getting started with Git
