My usual development install of Django has consisted of the following;

Today, I come across something else that might make it into my development dev install. django-devserver.

The default runserver is pretty good to get going quickly. However django-devserver includes some nice extras specifically for the development process. The following are displayed in the terminal, depending on config;

  • SQL queries
  • Profile summary
  • Cache summary
  • Memory use
  • AJAX output
  • Session info

django-devserver is also available for install using easy_install.

Note: The django-devserver and django-debug-toolbar don’t play well together.
