Does anyone out there have any development tips for working
locally/standalone on a Django project on a Mac?
Our production environment is Ubuntu+Apache+mod_wsgi+Django, and when I'm
developing, I use ubuntu, a replica of our database, and Django's manage.py
runserver. But, our designer uses a Mac, and would like to have a
standalone development environment for doing template work.
I spent one evening looking at getting MacPorts + MySQL + Python + Django,
and it sure was a bear. It was taking hours building xorg from scratch, for
some reason. (i.e. via a "sudo port install <somepackage>") Our project
uses several 3rd party reusable apps (django-registration at the very least,
but a couple others, like django-haystack) so I'd like something akin to PIP
on the Mac as well for installing those packages.
I googled around quite a bit, and didn't find an easy solution to this
problem. What do you guys do?
