Material Kit2 PRO (BS5) - Starter generated by AppSeed.

✅ Environment

To use the starter, Python3 should be installed properly in the workstation. If you are not sure if Python is installed, please open a terminal and type python --version. Here is the full list with dependencies and tools required to build the app:

  • Python3 - the programming language used to code the app
  • GIT - used to clone the source code from the Github repository
  • Basic development tools (g++ compiler, python development libraries ..etc) used by Python to compile the app dependencies in your environment.
  • (Optional) Docker - a popular virtualization software

✅ Manual Build

👉 Download the code

$ git clone
$ cd django-material-kit2-pro

Export GITHUB_TOKEN in the environment. The value is provided by AppSeed during purchase.

This is required because the project has a private REPO dependency:

$ export GITHUB_TOKEN='TOKEN_HERE'  # for Linux, Mac
$ $env:GITHUB_TOKEN = 'TOKEN_HERE' # Windows powerShell

👉 Install modules via VENV.

$ virtualenv env
$ source env/bin/activate
$ pip install -r requirements.txt

👉 Edit the .env using the template .env.sample.

✅ Manage App Users

By default, the starter is not provided with users. To access the private pages and the admin section (reserved for superusers) follow up the next sections.

👉 Create Superusers

To access the admin section, Django requires superuser privilegies. Let's create a new superuser and access the admin section of the project:

$ python createsuperuser

Once the superuser is successfully created, we can access the admin section:
