    Falco, in contrast to cookiecutter-django, aims to enhance the Django developer experience beyond project generation. It provides a CRUD generator and guides on various Django topics such as task queues, multitendency, deployment, realtime, etc.

    It's not a tutorial but it's a resource to generate a Python+Django project with celery and Dockerfiles and other things you mentioned :
  • Setting up Django in a Better Way in 5 Minutes and Understanding How It Works
    8 projects | | 13 Nov 2023
    There are very useful packages for bootstrapping your Django projects in minutes such as django-cookiecutter and djangox. If you are a seasoned developer I'd highly recommend using one of these instead of what I'm going to show here. But if you are struggling with the project structure of these packages as a beginner to intermediate Django developer and looking to structure your own Django projects in a better way, I have created a lightweight setup that deals with the basics of setting up a Django project with PostgreSQL as database and TailwindCSS as our styling library.

    And so, the idea for cookiecutter-django-lite came into existence. I am an absolute fan of - but for a lot of use cases this template is an overkill so I thought a barebones version of this will be superuseful - and that's how the idea of cookiecutter-django-lite was born.

    Consider taking a look at cookiecutter to generate projects from templates. There is also cookiecutter-django. As for your environment variables you should have an example .env file containing all the environment variables required by your project (without setting them) that can be safely pushed into your repository for you and other developers to copy into the actual .env file that'll be used by your project (add this file to .gitignore)

    I'm obviously biased, so take what I say with a grain of salt, but I also probably know more about this space than ~anyone else. I'd say that your characterization is pretty accurate. There are many similar products to Pegasus (you can find a pretty comprehensive list here: but most of them are either more focused on infrastructure/setup (e.g. cookiecutter-django or - as you noted - far less mature/maintained (most of the others on that list).

  • Where from to start building project?
    1 project | /r/django | 14 Jun 2023
    If you understand all that and just want to get started as quickly as possible, use a project generator such as cookiecutter-django or API Bakery. Note that I'd avoid using these until you have a solid grasp of Django otherwise you'll have no idea what's going on.

    Boilerplate is not in opposition to productivity. Especially when it’s all written for you, as it is in Django, Rails, etc. You can start with something like Cookiecutter Django.
