How To Install Django (for Development)

Django is an open-source web framework focused on scalability, re-usability and rapid development. In this tutorial, we will set up a Django environment for development purposes on your server. (For a live website, you’ll want to connect to a database, set up a domain name, and add security. Check out tutorials under the Django tag for more). Choose your operating system to get started.
