Structuring a Django Project
A trend in some Django applications is to structure your repositories poorly due to the new bundled application templates, by running:
$ django-admin.py startproject samplesite
The resulting repository structure looks like this:
README.rst samplesite/manage.py samplesite/samplesite/settings.py samplesite/samplesite/wsgi.py samplesite/samplesite/sampleapp/models.py
Repetitive paths are confusing for both you and anyone working with your codebase. Unnecessary nesting doesn’t help anybody.
$ django-admin.py startproject samplesite .
Note the “.”.
The resulting structure:
README.rst manage.py samplesite/settings.py samplesite/wsgi.py samplesite/sampleapp/models.py
Plan on Structuring Your Python Project correctly from the outset.
