The most common frame work Django offers great features for web-programming with python.
I have to take care of pip installation on my mac
easy_install is the way to go, yeh.
Here is another help link for django web-development
It is not surprising that nothing will work as simple as it seems. Well, here the first verification failed:
python manage.py runserver
maximum recursion depth exceeded
Someone kindly posted answer. Well, my functools.py is empty.
The answer is “python” had bugs (working with django), so upgrading python installation solved the problem.
Using MySQL in Django
My database is mysql, so I was tying to incorporate MySQL for django. As usual, nothing works as I expected. When I ran python manage migrate, I got error
File "/Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/django/db/backends/mysql/base.py", line 28, in
raise ImproperlyConfigured("Error loading MySQLdb module: %s" % e)
django.core.exceptions.ImproperlyConfigured: Error loading MySQLdb module: No module named MySQLdb
So, the problem was the “MySQLdb” module as someone pointed out. Well, again the installation itself reached error
RuntimeError: maximum recursion depth exceeded
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "setup.py", line 7, in
File "/Users/li11/django/mysql/MySQL-python-1.2.4b4/distribute_setup.py", line 145, in use_setuptools

raise IOError('Could not build the egg.')
IOError: Could not build the egg.
Using PostgreSQL in Django
It turns out that hooking up django with mysql is not that easy, I have got help from Andy who gave me their project on github repository. Well, they sticked with postgresql version 9.4+.
My mac has 9.0, so I have to upgrade it to 9.4+. It seems that postgres.app provides the easiest solution to mac user.
Next, I need to set path for postgresql
Using the Python virtualenv and virtualenvwrapper
Andy’s project needs these prerequisite, and I found this help doc for virtual environment.

Found a bunch of posting. After upgrading ox-10.11, all works out just fine.
People reported same errors
This one needs compiling from github source
Apple Store is the best answer
