I am trying to use Pycharm Community Edition to improve on my code in my Django application, but I cannot run all of my Django code that I'd like. I keep getting this traceback...
Traceback (most recent call last): File "C:/Users/Jaysp_000/firstSite/PROJECTone/blog_static/views.py", line 1, in <module> from django.views.decorators.csrf import csrf_exempt File "C:\Python34\lib\site-packages\django\views\decorators\csrf.py", line 3, in <module> from django.middleware.csrf import CsrfViewMiddleware, get_token File "C:\Python34\lib\site-packages\django\middleware\csrf.py", line 14, in <module> from django.utils.cache import patch_vary_headers File "C:\Python34\lib\site-packages\django\utils\cache.py", line 26, in <module> from django.core.cache import caches File "C:\Python34\lib\site-packages\django\core\cache\__init__.py", line 34, in <module> if DEFAULT_CACHE_ALIAS not in settings.CACHES: File "C:\Python34\lib\site-packages\django\conf\__init__.py", line 48, in __getattr__ self._setup(name) File "C:\Python34\lib\site-packages\django\conf\__init__.py", line 42, in _setup % (desc, ENVIRONMENT_VARIABLE)) django.core.exceptions.ImproperlyConfigured: Requested setting CACHES, but settings are not configured. You must either define the environment variable DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE or call settings.configure() before accessing settings.
This error seems to involve the
django.views.decortors.csrf.csrf_exempt that I imported to my views.py file. I've tried other files, and they have given me no issues. There is something in particular about this import, but I don't know what.
from django.views.decortors.csrf import csrf_exempt @csrf_exempt def handle_hook(request): from django.http import HttpResponse from django.core.management import call_command result = call_command('update_blog', verbosity = 0) return HttpResponse(result)
The same kind of issue shows up when I am trying to run the code on the python shell (I use 3.4) and when I
import django.http.request as request. I type in
handle_hook(request), and I get the same kind of error.
Im being told that I must either define the environment variable DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE or call settings.configure() before accessing settings, but I haven't a clue on how to do that. I've looked around and I am not certain if those methods specifically speak to my issue. Any clues?
