Fedora 27 : Testing the new Django web framework .

Today I tested the Django web framework version 2.0.3 with python 3 on my Fedora 27 distro.
The main reason is to see if the Django and Fedora working well.
I used the pip to install and activate the virtual environment for python. First you need to create your project into your folder. I make one folder named django_001.
$ mkdir django_001
$ cd django_001
The next step is to create and activate the virtual environment for python language and your project.
$ python3 -m venv django_001_venv
$ source django_001_venv/bin/activate
Into this virtual environment named django_001_venv you will install django web framework.
pip install django
If you have problems with update pip then update this tool. Now start the django project named django_test.
$ django-admin startproject django_test
$ cd django_test
$ python3 manage.py runserver
Open the url with your web browser.
The result is this:

If you try to use the admin web with password and user you will see errors.
One of the most common problem for django come from settings, let's see some file from the project:

  • manage.py - this runs project specific tasks (the django-admin is used to execute system wide Django tasks) and is used to execute project specific tasks;
  • __init__.py - this file that allows Python packages to be imported from directories where it's present and it's a generic file used in almost all Python applications;
  • settings.py - the configuration settings for the Django project;
  • urls.py - contains URL patterns for the Django project; 
  • wsgi.py - is WSGI configuration properties for the Django project ( you don't need to setup WSGI to develop Django applications).

The next step is to create first django application.
$ python manage.py startapp django_blog
This make a folder named django_blog into the main django_test folder. Into the main django_test folder you have another django_test folder with settings.py file. Add into settings.py file the django_blog application.
Let's fix some issues about admin and the django_blog application.
Into the main django_test folder with manage.py file use this:
$ python3 manage.py migrate
$ python3 manage.py createsuperuser

This fix the django framework and let you to add your superuser using the admin page, see:

The next issue is: create the website ( see the django_blog folder) using the Django web framework.
I don't have a issue for this django_blog but you can follow this tutorial link.

Fedora 27 : 'No Space Left on Device' errors .

The No Space Left on Device error is a good issue for a linux user.
The error come one issue that you have no space left on your hard drive.
The purpose of linux user is to detect the problem with the linux operating system.
You can use your root account or sudo user to run some of this linux commands.
This error named No Space Left on Device is just a vague problem and can be the cause of multiple vague errors on Linux systems.
Here are some ways you can solve the problem.

Use du and df commands to see if your disk is full (check into home and root folders area):
# df -h
# df -i /
# du -sh /

Check deleted file reserved by process (PID) with lsof:
# lsof / | grep deleted
Take a look at unlinked files:
# lsof -a +L1 *mountpoint*

Check you have bad filesystem blocks with fsck:
# fsck -vcck /dev/sda2

If you use a virtual machine (VM) then you can get this error in process of emulation of linux operating system for some PID.
It also happened to me with Android Studio software under Fedora 27 - the error is show like: No Space Left on Device.
I do not know why this happens, but I assume it's an emulation task in the memory area.

Fedora and childish ideas .

The marketing, design and promotion of any product is a key element of success.
I have to admit that although I am not an active member of Fedora distribution teams and I am glad to be able to help where it is needed.
Over the last time I spend my online time with my son playing Roblox ( because he is away from me) and trying to show him what the computer can do for people.
This game allows development with the LUA programming language and object creation for users.
The idea that programs and games are essential factors in our lives.
Also the fact that I have been using Fedora for a long time, I have allowed myself to implement an intention to promote the Fedora distribution.
This is a shirt created with the Fedora logo and can be worn in the Roblox game. He found it here.
