djangocms-installer is a console wizard to help bootstrapping a django CMS project.

It used to be called aldryn-installer, but since version 0.2.0 it’s been renamed djangocms-installer for clarity.


  1. Create an empty virtualenv:

    virtualenv /virtualenv/path/my_project
  2. Install djangocms-installer:

    pip install djangocms-installer


    pip install -e git+


While this wizard try to handle most of the things for you, it doesn’t check for all the proper native (non python) libraries to be installed. Before running this, please check you have the proper header and libraries installed and available for packages to be installed.

Libraries you would want to check:

  • libjpeg (for JPEG support in Pillow)
