I'm new to PyCharm and Django, was going through the tutorial, and found it frustrating because of the discrepancies from the current PyCharm product (2017.3.2 Professional Edition) and some of the steps were confusing. Specifically:
- After I create the proejct, there is no polls directory - is that as expected?
- I was unclear about the database and tried to just supply a simple name, leaving the engine alone (see the screenshot above). I'm not sure if that's the right thing to do or not.
- I think I was able to launch the Django server: I got a window for manage.py but I don't understand what I'm supposed to do at that point.
The tutorial states "enter task name in the manage.py console" but that makes no sense. It is unclear to me from the screenshot what if anything was typed by the user.
I think the tutorial should match the current version of the product and should explain things for newbies who don't like myself who don't know what we're doing. I'm going to try to play with Django natively without PyCharm.
