CINS465 - Web Development Fundamentals

Link to resource on GitHub


Getting started with making a simple stand alone Django web project.

In this assignment your website needs to do the following:

  • Display "CINS465 Hello World"
  • Be submitted to GitHub correctly
  • Containerized is optional
  • Must be submitted to the correct branch
  • You should be able to view the site on your local machine at http://localhost:8000/. For more information on setting up routes in Django, please see the documentation

Submitting Assignment 2

If you haven't already create your CINS465 repo through the form on my website, you'll need the GitHub Token given out in lecture to do so.

The code should be submitted to your CINS465 on a branch named assignment2, make sure your case is identical for your branch or I may not find/grade your submission. To do this you can do the following in your repo directory, it assumes you want to add all the code in the directory:

git checkout -b assignment2 #create branch and switch to it git add -A #add all git commit -m "Assignment 2 Submission" #Commit changes to branch git push --set-upstream origin assignment2 #Push code up to assignment2 branch on remote

You should have your code setup such that when cloned in your folder it can be run directly via python runserver. If you chose to you can containerize your code via docker. If you choose to do this you should have either a docker-compose.yml in your root directory for me to launch your project or a Dockerfile in your root directory I can build a container from.
