One of the many nice touches of the Django framework is that it provides tools and instructions to make a standalone Django documentation set from its distribution. (Django is an application framework for the Python language that helps with database access and web application.) Standalone docs are great for people like me who work on a laptop and are sometimes off the net. But I’m using Mac OS X, I get my code through Macports, and Django’s instructions don’t quite cover this case. So I just figured it out. Here’s the tricks I needed. Maybe it will help you.
