[Fixed]-Web Application (Django) typical project folder structure


I’ve seen a few opinions on this:

If you’re new to web development though, you might want to consider just using the folder structure django-admin and manage.py give you (as Ben suggests). That will let you learn how to write a web app, and you can move the files around later as you need.


I think the folder structure and other best practices are covered by Lincoln Loop’s Django Best Practices document.

They even have a project on github to auto generate the layout in their recommended structure.

I think it is very similar and in line with the Pinax recommendations; but you might want to verify this part.
