Python Question

Set up a Django Project with Mamp?

I just downloaded a newer version of MAMP (3.2.1) and i noticed that this Version has Python installed and also seems to handle SQLite Databases.

Shouldn't I be able to manage Django Projects with it?

Where and how would i install it?

I found some Posts in the Web (before my new MAMP release) where People already trying to get MAMP + Django to work with MySQL but those seemed more complicated to me then the usual setup with Virtualenv + SQLite/Postgres.
I'm pretty new to django but starting a project at the time seems quite simple to me.

If Django would work with MAMP together what would be the advantages?

Anyone has already experiences or useful links?

OK i gues working with MAMP MySQL has the advantage that i can easy import/export Database with php MyAdmin tool. Anyway based on tanorix answer here how for me Django worked with MAMP MySQL Database:

  'default': {
      'ENGINE': 'django.db.backends.mysql', 
      'NAME': 'projectdb',                   
      'USER': 'root',
      'PASSWORD': 'root',
      'HOST': '/Applications/MAMP/tmp/mysql/mysql.sock',
      'PORT': '8888',


python manage.py migrate
