Where should I code my django project after I configured the server, database and created the django project?


I’m new to DigitalOcean, Django and Postgres. I just set up my django project, server and database on ubuntu successfully. I’d like to know do I just code my project on ubuntu afterwards, or is there anyway for me to code my django project on my Windows OS?

If I’m only allowed to work on my project on Ubuntu, normally, do programmers use Pycharm or just Terminal to code?

This question is quite rookiesh, hope you don’t mind, thanks for your help!

Kind regards, Xi

Hi @xichenmorel,

This is entierly up to you. You can code the project directly on your Droplet, you can create a Git Repository, work on your project, upload to GIT and from your Droplet Pull the new changes, or what I’ll recommend for you at this time is to configure an ssh remote connection from a program like Pycharm or Visual Stuido code to your Droplet.

Using the above wil allow you to work on your project on a local program like Pycharm which will be connected to your Droplet and automatically upload the updates for you.
