Python Question

can't create django project using Windows command prompt

if i run

django-admin.py startproject mysite


django-admin.py (which is located in
C:\python27\scripts/django-admin.py
) will open in a file editor (now it opens in python ide, but in the past i had pype so it would open in pype) so the file opens:

#!C:\Python27\python.exe
from django.core import management

if __name__ == "__main__":
management.execute_from_command_line()


i see no output in the command prompt at all, so lets say i typed

C:\abc:>django-admin.py startproject mysite


when I hit enter i see
C:\abc>


and the project will not be created using the command prompt

this issue is not new for me, i'm creating my python projects using pydev, i would love to fix this issue with the command prompt though :)

@slugonamission

when I run

pyhon django-admin.py startproject mysite


the output of the command prompt is

python: can't open 'django-admin.py' file : [Errno 2] No such file or directory

Answer

I don't think Windows supports the shebang line. Try invoking it with python django-admin.py ...
