Django packaging project with multiple applications
I am trying to package my Django project with no success. My project looks like this:
dsbg/ manage.py dsbg/ __init__.py urls.py wsgi.py app1/ __init__.py models.py views.py urls.py app2/ __init__.py models.py views.py urls.py settings/ base.py local.py prod.py static/ app1/ images/ background.gif style.css templates/ home.html app1/ detail.html index.html app2/ detail.html index.html
I followed the procedure here , but I'm not sure if I'm doing the right thing (their example only has one application: polls), I did the following:
- move apps + static + directory templates to new django-dsbg directory (save dsbg and settings in root directory)
- in django-dsbg, create a setup.py file with package files (app1 and app2) and create MANIFEST.in to include static and template directories.
in django-dsbg, run:
python setup.py sdist
in the parent django-dsbg directory, run:
pip install --user django-dsbg/dist/django-dsbg-0.1.tar.gz
After that, the project looks like this:
dsbg/ manage.py settings/ base.py local.py prod.py dsbg/ __init__.py urls.py wsgi.py django-dsbg/ LICENSE MANIFEST.in README.rst app1/ models.py views.py urls.py app2/ models.py views.py urls.py templates/ home.html app1/ ... app2/ ... static/ ...
Now in the root directory (top dsbg) I try to start the server:
python manage.py runserver --settings=settings.local
The server works well, but when pointing to localhost, the browser says:
TemplateDoesNotExist at / home.html. ... Python Path: ['/home/patrick/django/dsbg/dsbg', ... '/home/patrick/.local/lib/python2.7/site-packages']
This home.html file is located in django-dsbg / templates. Neither dsbg / dsbg nor .local / lib / python2.7 / site-packages contain home.html. The latter contains all my apps, but not the static or template directory.
What am I doing wrong? Can anyone help me? Any help is appreciated. Patrick
