Open a terminal and move to the directory containing the django-admin file using the
In our case, the django-admin file resides on the Desktop.
We can create a new project using the
startproject command, followed by the name of the project (HelloWorld). This command will create a new folder with the given name of the project in the same directory. Now, once again, move into the new directory using the
cd command and deploy it on the local server.
In your project folder, you will have a Python file with the name manage and another folder with the name project.
After deploying it at the local server, you will get a bunch of lines on the command line interface with the server URL in it (like in the illustration above). Copy that URL to your browser and you will get an introductory message. Once you are done, press
Ctrl+c on the command line to exit from the server.
Now, move inside the second HelloWorld folder and create a view file using the
C:\users\educative\Helloworld\HelloWorld> touch view.py
Now, we will edit two files:
In the this file we will write the Http response and Print function.
# editing view.py file import django.http from HttpResponse def print(request): return HttpResponse("Hello World!")
Once we have created our view, we will add URL configurations for our view .There will be a lot of code, so you will need to add a few lines for your print function.
# Editing url.py file # add this command from . import views # add this code inside the urlpatterns url(r'^,view.print),
Once you are done editing those two files, run this command again:
C:\users\educative\HelloWorld> python manage.py runserver
And, yes! It prints “Hello World” when you run the URL.
