How to Install Django on Debian 9

/ Category: Tutorials / Comments: None

In this tutorial, we’ll be showing you how to install Django on your Debian Cloud VPS.

There is a very good reason why Django is the top Python web development framework. It is powerful, flexible, and at the same time, it does not get in the developers’ way. It scales very well too, powering sites such as Instagram.

It is quite simple to install a Django development environment on Linux, and Debian makes it that much more simple. You can go with two different methods of installation: the virtualenv way, and the Debian way. The virtualenv way keeps all Python packages, including Django, installed with it contained, and that allows multiple installations with different packages and their versions. For installation and management of Django the Debian way uses  apt, which can be considered as the more user-friendly method. In this tutorial, however, we’ll be covering both methods. Let’s get started with the installation.

How to Install Yarn on Ubuntu 16.04

/ Category: Tutorials / Comments: None

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Yarn on an Ubuntu 16.04 Cloud VPS, as well as go over some of the basics with using Yarn.

Yarn is a Javascript package manager, serving as an alternative to NPM. It is an open-source project and was built by a team at Facebook. There are many advantages when using Yarn, such as:

  • Offline Installation
  • Faster download, packages are installed in parallel
  • Support for multiple registries

As you can see, the interesting feature is the offline installation. Once you have installed a package, it will be cached and we can create another project from scratch without being connected to the internet, which in turn will save our bandwidth usage.
Usually, a project requires some dependencies and every time we install them to start a project, the “npm install” command would consume your bandwidth. When using Yarn, the download is done just once. Let’s begin installing Yarn.
