Django Documentation (CHM & PDF)

Django documentation in chm and pdf format

Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design.

About the chm format

    This CHM is very useful, but this chm does not work under linux. I tried it with xchm, gnochm, kchmviewer – none of this linux chm viewers does not display this documentation correctly. Usually I use xchm to read PHP, MySQL, Smarty documentation under Ubuntu but this one is totally broken.
    Under Win works very well.

  1. I have uploaded a new one, and I have tested it, this one works with kchmviewer (index does not work though).

    Yes, works with xchm. Index almost works too – opens proper article but does not follow to proper part. But it’s not a big problem.
    Thanks a lot.

    I use mandriva 2008, for viewing chm file and have tested chmsee, kchm. The viewers display this documentation correctly

  2. Is there a more current version of this chm file available?

  3. The pdf format was good. Must have worked hard on it.

  4. Great job, thanks for sharing the PDF, it’s great to print :)

  5. Nice…, I like it…, Have a nice Offline Revision of Django’s Documentaion. Both .chm and .pdf file format are Great…

  6. Good PDF, but the ‘tabs’ are nowhere to be seen. This is annoying when reading code. Maby you can fix it?

    Thank you!

    Would you articulate how the CHM files are generated? I’d love to build daily versions off the trunk docs.
