Django CMS, Mezzanine and Wagtail are the three most popular Django-based content management systems; all three have kept (or, in Wagtail's case, gained) their popularity because they are so different to each other.

This tutorial assumes you are familiar with with Django web development. It walks you through deploying the official Django tutorial app, Writing your first Django App. It's a good idea work through that tutorial before this one, especially if you are new to Django development.
