So you found out about TurboGears web framework and have decided you want to give it a try. Welcome to the TurboGears community!
This document tries to guide you through the process of creating your first TurboGears project and give you pointers to further documentation. The documentation herein is valid for version 1.5 of TurboGears and all later minor releases (e.g. 1.5.1) of this version.
TurboGears 1.5 is mostly compatible with TurboGears 1.0 and almost all of the documentation for this version does still apply. In cases where there have been important changes from 1.0 to 1.5, we will indicate this in this guide.
After installation, to start a new TurboGears project, you simple run the quickstart command from a command line:
$ tg-admin quickstart
This will ask for all the necessary information, like the name of your project etc. and will create a new project directory in the current working directory. This is all you should need to know to get started, but more options can be found on the quickstart guide.
