django-admin: Create a new Django project.
$ django-admin startproject ${project_name}
try on your machine

The command "django-admin startproject ${project_name}" is a command-line command used to create a new Django project.

Here's an explanation of each part of the command:

  • "django-admin": This refers to the Django admin utility. It is a command-line tool used to manage various aspects of Django projects.
  • "startproject": This is the specific command that tells the Django admin utility to create a new project.
  • "${project_name}": This represents a placeholder for the name of the project that you want to create. You need to replace "${project_name}" with the actual name you want to give to your project.

For example, if you want to create a Django project called "my_project", the command would be: django-admin startproject my_project

This command will then generate the necessary project structure and files, allowing you to start developing your Django application.
