How to Create a Basic Project using MVT in Django ?

Prerequisite – Django Project MVT Structure

Assuming you have gone through the previous article. This article focusses on creating a basic project to render a template using MVT architecture. We will use MVT (Models, Views, Templates) to render data to a local server.

Create a basic Project:

  • To initiate a project of Django on Your PC, open Terminal and Enter the following command
django-admin startproject projectName
  • A New Folder with name projectName will be created. To enter in the project using terminal enter command
cd projectName
  • Create a new file inside the project folder where, and other files are stored and save the following code in it-
# HttpResponse is used to 
# pass the information  
# back to view 
from django.http import HttpResponse 
# Defining a function which 
# will receive request and 
# perform task depending  
# upon function definition 
def hello_geek (request) : 
    # This will return Hello Mca 
    # string as HttpResponse 
    return HttpResponse("Hello MCA") 

  • Open inside project folder (projectName) and add your entry-
  • Import hello_geek function from file.
from projectName.views import hello_mcatutorials

  • Add an entry in url field inside url patterns-
path('geek/', hello_geek),

  • Now to run the server follow these steps-
  • Open command prompt and change directory to env_site by this command-
$ cd env_site
  • Go to Script directory inside env_site and activate virtual environment-
$ cd Script
$ activate
  • Return to the env_site directory and goto the project directory-
$ cd ..
$ cd mcatutorials_site
  • Start the server- Start the server by typing following command in cmd-
$ python runserver

Note- Take the help of previous django article if any issue arises in starting the server.

  • Checking – Open the browser and type this url-

Bingo…!! You are done with creating and rendering a basic Project.
