Instructions on how to install the debug toolbar on a local machine are not clear, I'm using Django 1.11.2

I spent an hour now trying to install the debugging toolbar with no success, Kenneth Love would you please clarify how to do that, on a local machine, I don't use Workspaces :) Thanks!

Did you look at the instructions? It's mostly install the package, add the URLs, add the middleware, set the INTERNAL_IPS.

the instructions in the video are outdated, maybe consider to adding a link in the teacher's notes. I had to add the Internal IPs for it to work

Looks like I forgot to add code in URLconf to urls.py, once I added it I saw the debugging bar :)

from django.conf import settings

if settings.DEBUG:
  import debug_toolbar
  urlpatterns =[
         url(r'^__debug__/', include(debug_toolbar.urls)),
         ] + urlpatterns
