Django App Generator

Introducing Django App Generator (aka Rocket Generator), a tool that aims to help developers generate starters on top of Django, a leading Python framework.

✅ How it works

  • Access the Django Generator page (no account is required)
  • Select the design: Soft Dashboard, Tabler, Berry, Material Kit
  • Edit your DB Settings
  • Edit the fields for the Extended User Model
    • Default: name, phone, bio
  • You can add other models as well
  • Enable the API for each defined model
  • Enable Docker Support

During the process, the user can visualize the app settings at the bottom of the generator. Once confirmed, the platform triggers the generator and the current process can be tracked in the Tasks page.
