Welcome to the django-extensions documentation!

Django Extensions is a collection of custom extensions for the Django Framework.

These include management commands, additional database fields, admin extensions and much more.


Getting Started

The easiest way to figure out what Django Extensions are all about is to watch the excellent screencast by Eric Holscher (Direct Vimeo link). In a couple minutes Eric walks you through a half a dozen command extensions.

Getting it

You can get Django Extensions by using pip:

$ pip install django-extensions

If you want to install it from source, grab the git repository and run setup.py:

$ git clone git://github.com/django-extensions/django-extensions.git
$ cd django-extensions
$ python setup.py install

Then you will need to add the django_extensions application to the INSTALLED_APPS setting of your Django project settings.py file.

For more detailed instructions check out our Installation instructions. Enjoy.

Compatibility with versions of Python and Django

We follow the Django guidelines for supported Python and Django versions. See more at Django Supported Versions

This might mean the django-extensions may work with older or unsupported versions but we do not guarantee it and most likely will not fix bugs related to incompatibilities with older versions.
