1. Download the latest version. Do not clone it! It would add repository files you don't want in your project, simply because you probably will add it to your preferred revision control system. You can use the download URL that points to the latest app changeset (tip)::
2. Extract the tarball contents and rename the resulting django-nbskel folder to whatever your project is going to call (in the example below a name it myproject)::
5. Move to your project directory and run these two django commands to initialize everything::
- $ python manage.py syncdb --noinput --settings=setting_conf/localsettings
- $ python manage.py runserver --settings=setting_conf/localsettings
+ $ python manage.py syncdb --noinput --settings=settings_conf.localsettings
+ $ python manage.py runserver --settings=settings_conf.localsettings
6. At this point you can begin coding. As long as you have all the necessary included into your django project, you can forget about all those startup quirks and go straight to the point.
