New Project Templates section!

Are you looking for a quick start to a project and just don't want to have to re-add the same old settings variables? Are you looking for a solution to use an existing app/package/toolkit with your favorite Python package but don't know where to start? Let me help you with this brand new section, Project Templates.

This section will grow to contain my personally most used configuration types for various frameworks, currently only Django is used. I got the idea when I kept building new Django projects from scratch or using the new Django feature for a custom project directory. I thought to myself... Wouldn't a central repository of common Django configurations be helpful to a larger audience? There are plenty of people asking how to use Django with Bootstrap or jQueryUI, and I know this new section will definitely help those folks.

How does this new section work?

Glad you asked! The section is able to store individual settings.py, urls.py, and of course a base.html. I make these files available as a collection called a Project Template, which can either be viewed in full from the comfort of your web browser or easily downloaded as a ZIP file. The ZIP files are automatically generated which allows me to auto-generate the Django SECRET_KEY, to make using the template as easy as possible. With these three files, you will be up and running in Django in no time using Bootstrap or other toolkits. Please let me know what you think of this idea below... And yes, I know the navigation bar is starting to look a bit cluttered.

Great stuff, very helpful for the noobs simply trying to get up to speed so they can move to custom ideas.
