 +[[http://​www.djangoproject.com/​|Django]] is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design.
 +
 +Developed and used over two years by a fast-moving online-news operation, Django was designed to handle two challenges: the intensive deadlines of a newsroom and the stringent requirements of the  [[http://​www.djangoproject.com/​documentation/​faq/#​who-s-behind-this|experienced Web developers who wrote it]]. It lets you build high-performing,​ elegant Web applications quickly.
 +
 +Django focuses on automating as much as possible and adhering to the  [[http://​c2.com/​cgi/​wiki?​DontRepeatYourself|DRY principle]].
 +
 +====== Where to download kits ======
 +The recommended way to install Django on OpenVMS is to install the Portable Python kit, for more information view [[DownloadAndInstallationPython|Download and installation of Python for OpenVMS]]
 +
 +====== How to install/run Django on OpenVMS ======
 +Django for Python is already installed in the Portable Python LD image. The root Django source tree is defined using the logical django_root.
 +
 +Django for Python includes an Oracle/Rdb backend, so you can develop/​deploy using SQLite3 (OpenVMS 8.2 minimum), MySQL, Oracle (need to build a Python module not provided in the Python for OpenVMS distribution),​ or Rdb.
 +
 +===== Setup an application =====
 +==== Django setup ====
 +<​code>​
 +$ @django_root:​[vms]setup
 +</​code>​
 +==== Starting a Project ====
 +  $ python /​django_root/​django/​bin/​django-admin.py startproject mysite
 +
 +:!: Create the project in a directory which has ben created using /version=1.
 +
 +==== Test the newly created project ====
 +For example, if you want to start a server on port 8000 on IP adress 192.168.0.100:​
 +
 +<​code>​
 +$ set default [.mysite]
 +$ python manage.py runserver --noreload 192.168.0.100:​8000
 +Validating models...
 +0 errors found
 +
 +Django version 0.97-pre-SVN-unknown,​ using settings '​mysite.settings'​
 +Development server is running at http://​192.168.0.100:​8000/​
 +Quit the server with CONTROL-C.
 +</​code>​
 +Note: --noreload is mandatory on OpenVMS
 +
 +For more information read chapter 2 of the [[http://​www.djangobook.com/​|Django book]]
 +
 +===== Django and WASD =====
 +A cgiplus example:
 +
 +<​code>​
 +$ set default where_is_your_application
 +$ mcr cgi_exe:​pyrte sys$input
 +import os
 +import sys
 +import wasd
 +
 +# This has to be done here otherwise Django won't be in a directory
 +# that's in PYTHONPATH.
 +sys.path.append('/​django_root/'​)
 +sys.path.append('​../'​)
 +
 +from django.core.handlers.wsgi import WSGIHandler
 +
 +if __name__ == '​__main__':​
 +    os.environ['​DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE'​] = '​settings'​
 +    application = WSGIHandler()
 +    while wasd.cgiplus_begin():​
 +        wasd.wsgi_run(application)
 +</​code>​
 +===== More information =====
 +Django on OpenVMS is similar to Django on any other platform. So [[http://​www.djangoproject.com/​|Django official Web site]] and [[http://​www.djangobook.com/​|Django book]] are recommended reading.
 +
 +Have fun!
