[Fixed]-Installing django 1.5(development version) in virtualenv


Directly from the github repository.

pip install git+git://github.com/django/django.git@1.5b2


Django 1.5 was released!. To install it use:

pip install django

To install the latest development version without git, on your own risk use:

pip install https://github.com/django/django/zipball/master

Django 1.5 Release Candidate 2 (RC2) was released, and it can be installed using pip without installing git:

pip install https://www.djangoproject.com/download/1.5c2/tarball/



Now that the github version is 1.6 ‘alpha’ (atm), to get the 1.5.x branch, you can:

pip install --upgrade git+http://github.com/django/django.git@stable/1.5.x#egg=django

Edit: You may need to pip uninstall Django to remove previous versions.


Here is instruction how you can grab the code from git. After that go to your virtual env

source ~/path/to/venv/bin/activate

and go to downloaded sources and run setup.py:

python setup.py install

and now you have installed latest development Django.
