Django for Designers/Laptop setup/Linux download

Use command prompt to download the codeEdit

This tutorial distributes sample code using git. So you'll have to open up a command prompt.

Once you have it open, first change directory into your Documents folder:

cd Documents

(If you have a personal preference for where to store code, you should cd there instead.)

Now, use git to clone the repository:

git clone git://

You should see messages about how it is downloading, and then you will get your prompt back.

Make sure it downloaded correctlyEdit

Type this command to switch into the django-for-designers directory:

cd django-for-designers

If that works (and your prompt changes accordingly), then you have successfully gotten the code!
