dj-cmd 0.5

`dj cmd` is a shortcut for Django's `python` commands.

Tired of typing python runserver to invoke Django commands? Just

pip install dj-cmd

and then

dj r

from any project’s directory.


  • saves typing
  • automatically locates Django’s script in the current or parent directories
  • works great with virtualenv, even on Windows


List of command aliases is a matter of personal taste, so go ahead and adjust the config or fork the project and add yours to the file.

Currently supported commands:

  • r or run - runserver
  • any valid command

Config file

Command aliases can also be specified using a config file.

If a .djcmd or .dj.ini config file is present in the user’s home directory or in the base directory, it is used to populate the list of command aliases.

Example of the .djcmd config file:



cs=collectstatic --noinput

sma=schemamigration --auto
smi=schemamigration --init

mm=makemessages -a


Put it in your home or in the base directory of your project.


dj-cmd is released under the BSD license.
