How can I build a Django project in windows and how can set a directory for that?

1 Answer

Hi Sahar

First install python on windows, see link on how to do that http://www.howtogeek.com/197947/how-to-install-python-on-windows/

1) Install virtualenv by typing the command-> pip install virtualenv

2) run the command -> \your directory path \env\Scripts\activate

3) once the virtualenv is activated type the command -> pip install django

From this point on you should be able to create a django project as normal.

4) to deactivate the enviroment type -> deactivate

hope this helps
