Install Django on Ubuntu


We can install Django in three ways:

1) Install Django using Apt manager

2) Install Django using PIP

3) Install Django using Git hub.


Install Django using Apt Manager


Using Apt Manager you can install the Django framework from default Ubuntu Package Manager.

   $ sudo apt-get install python3-django

 If you want to install, Django 2 (however this is not recommended, as support is no longer available) use the following command.

  $ sudo apt-get install python-django

  It will install a stable version of Django on your Linux box.

Install Django using PIP


First, Install PIP  by using the following command

  $ sudo apt-get install python3-pip

Now install Django using PIP

   $ pip3 install django

It will also install a stable version of Django on your Linux box.

Install Django using Github

Use this method if you want to install a development version rather than a stable Version. To install Django from Github you must install PIP and Git both first. Please follow the following commands to install Django from Github.


$ sudo apt-get install python3-pip

$ sudo apt-get install git

Now clone the Django repository to your local

Create a folder namely django_repo in your home directory.

$ mkdir ~/django_repo

 change directory to django_repo.

$ cd ~/django_repo

Now clone the Django repository to your local

$ git clone git://

Install Virtualenv to create virtual environment

$sudo apt install virtualenv -y

Create and activate Virual Environment.

 $ virtualenv venv

 $ source ./venv/bin/activate

Now install the Django using PIP command.

$ pip install -e ~/django_repo

The above command installs Django on your system.
