How to check Django version


Question

I have to use Python and Django for our application. So I have two versions of Python, 2.6 and 2.7. Now I have installed Django. I could run the sample application for testing Django succesfuly. But how do I make sure whether Django uses the 2.6 or 2.7 version and what version of modules Django uses?

Accepted Answer

Django 1.5 supports Python 2.6.5 and later.

If you're under Linux and want to check the Python version you're using, run python -V from the command line.

If you want to check the Django version, open a Python console and type

>>> import django
>>> django.VERSION
(2, 0, 0, 'final', 0)

Basically the same as bcoughlan's answer, but here it is as an executable command:

$ python -c "import django; print(django.get_version())"
2.0
