New Bitnami Django Stack 1.8 released

Django, the Python Web framework, released the version 1.8 and we are happy to announce that this version is already available in Bitnami.

Django 1.8 has been designated as Django’s second "Long-Term Support" (LTS) release. It will receive security updates for at least three years after its release. This version has security enhancements and it supports multiple template engines and new data types. You can find the complete list of new features in the official release notes.

Bitnami Django is available as native installers (available for Linux, Windows and Mac OS),virtual machines and cloud images for Amazon EC2Azure and Google Cloud Platform.

You can start your first project by following the steps below: 

This command will create a new project in your current directory. startproject yourproject

You can start the new project by running the following commands.

$ cd ./yourproject
$ python runserver

The last command will start a Django development server, so you can develop things quickly without having to deal with configuring a production server.

Now that the server is running, visit with your Web browser. When you see a “Welcome to Django” page, you'll know that it worked!

You can find more information about how to manage your installation on our wiki. Still have questions? We would be happy to answer them on our community forum.
