Developer Og Maciel is working on a virtual appliance for Django developers. It should include everything you need to work with the Python framework for the Web.
The platform for the Django Developer Kit Appliance is the free Red Hat CentOS, although the appliance uses the Conary package manager. Maciel also includes a code snapshot from the upcoming Django version 1.2. The Apache webserver and the SQLite and PostgreSQL databases complete the picture. Maciel's blog has the entire list of packages.
Marcel admits that he is "still working out the kinks." The Django DevKit is available for download as VM images for VMware and VMware ESX, for Amazon's EC2 cloud, and as a raw filesystem image. After startup, the DevKit provides an admin interface config at https://localhost:8003.
In his screencast, Douglas Napoleone programs a simple music database by using the Python Django framework. In its now available second version, Napoleone demonstrates how it works in the roughly two hours of the video.
