Django – Dealing with warnings


Prerequisite : Django – Creating project

Django is a great framework which provides you a lot of pre-defined services and workflow so that one can work flawlessly. Django apps are designed to make your code clean and reusable. Django works on the concept of DRY which means Don’t Repeat Yourself.

After creating project , your directory should look like this:



Doesn’t it look a little confusing? Two folders with the same name? So, here is good news. You can change the name of the outer folder because it is just a folder containing your project but please don’t change the name of the inner folder. Let’s rename the outer folder as geeksforgeeks.

Now, it should look like:

Unapplied migrations

After completing Set 2, you have got Django server worked –

but did you notice the warning in red color?

You have 15 unapplied migrations…


We will discuss about such warnings later. For the sake of simplicity, let’s remove the warnings for now. Stop your server using CTRL+C. Run the following command in your terminal:

python manage.py migrate

Now on your command prompt, you will see something like this:

Now run command

python manage.py runserver

Congratulations, you have silenced all warnings

Moving towards Django apps –

We can get rid of views.py because Django apps are supposed to handle with views. Also, remove these two lines from related files.

from geeks_site.views import hello_geeks
path('geek/', hello_geek),
