A friend asked me how to setup an Django enviroment on Windows without the Cygwin fuzz. Here is the shortest steps I can think of:
1. Install Python3.4 as default path. (It should be "C:\Python34").
2. Open cmd.exe program on Windows and run the following commands:
pip install django
python C:\Python34\Lib\site-packages\django\bin\django-admin.py startproject mysite
python manage.py syncdb
(Follow prompts to setup an initial db. remember the user you used here.)
python manage.py runserver
3. You are ready to django! Open your browser http://127.0.0.1:8000 to verify.
Or login into http://127.0.0.1:8000/admin with the user you setup above.
