Django 1.5 Cheat Sheet

Django 1.5 solved – don’t say we’re not good to you!

At Mercurytide, we know all too well the difficulties of memorising shortcuts when you work in different frameworks. You think you’ve mastered it…and then a new version comes along. Mercurytide’s developers have been working with Django 1.5 since its release in February 2013. Our skilled developers have created a solid, quick-start cheat sheet with an easy to reference layout. We’ve fused our technical knowledge with Django’s latest features – allowing you to motor ahead with the new developments.

Django Cheat Sheet 1.5

Don’t give yourself a Django-induced headache; just download our cheat sheets below. Our cheat sheets are available in a variety of formats, including A4 and US letter format. This keeps our US followers happy (they found our previous cheat sheets really useful!)

We have also included the four PNGs below, which can be used as a screen background, for quick referencing while you work.

We’ve included the shortcuts for the most commonly used aspects of Django, including: templates, forms, admin and models.

If you need cheat sheets for an earlier version of Django then don't worry, we've taken care of that too. They can be found here.
