I've put together and shared on GitHub a barebones project containg all the files needed to get started with a Django website. Essentially this is a clean file structure usable to get started with Django quickly.. The idea is that after downloading this, you just have to change a couple of names (see the README file for more details).. and there you go - you have a complete Django project that runs and can be customized.
The code is here: bitbucket.org/magicrebirth/django_bproject. Feel free to download or fork it as you like!
Currently the B_project is set up to work with Django 1.3 and it has a few 'batteries' included (= commonly used apps):
The other things included in the framework are:
settings.pyfile that calls localized settings specifications depending on parameters (eg dev server or live one)
