In the Django Intro page, we learned that the result should be in HTML, and it should be created in a template, so let's do that.

Create a templates folder inside the members folder, and create a HTML file named myfirst.html.

The file structure should be like this:


Open the HTML file and insert the following:


<!DOCTYPE html>




<h1>Hello World!</h1>

<p>Welcome to my first Django project!</p>




Modify the View

Open the views.py file and replace the members view with this:


from django.http import HttpResponse

from django.template import loader


def members(request):

  template = loader.get_template('myfirst.html')

  return HttpResponse(template.render())

Change Settings

To be able to work with more complicated stuff than "Hello World!", We have to tell Django that a new app is created.

This is done in the settings.py file in the my_tennis_club folder.

Look up the INSTALLED_APPS[] list and add the members app like this:












Then run this command:

py manage.py migrate

Which will produce this output:
