+=== A quick note ===
+
+If you looking in the settings.py, you will notice that the sqlite DB location, has an absolute path which will not work for local development.  However, there is an override for local_settings.py file.  I have something like the following in mine:
+
+DATABASES = {
+    'default': {
+        'ENGINE': 'django.db.backends.sqlite3', # Add 'postgresql_psycopg2', 'postgresql', 'mysql', 'sqlite3' or 'oracle'.
+        'NAME': '<project>.db',                      # Or path to database file if using sqlite3.
+        'USER': '',                      # Not used with sqlite3.
+        'PASSWORD': '',                  # Not used with sqlite3.
+        'HOST': '',                      # Set to empty string for localhost. Not used with sqlite3.
+        'PORT': '',                      # Set to empty string for default. Not used with sqlite3.
+    }
+}
+
+ADMIN_MEDIA_PREFIX = '/static/admin/'

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
