What is Ninja IDE ?
Ninja-IDE stands for Ninja is not just another IDE. It’s specially designed for Python developers. So, if you’re a python programmer, developing some desktop apps or web apps (probably, with Django framework), you must give it a try. It’s a simple, lightweight and fast IDE (not a bloated one – as you would usually think of an IDE). It’s available for all common platforms like Ubuntu or any GNU/Linux distro, Windows or Mac etc, as a free software (GPL).
- simplicity (it’s simple to use)

Django is one of the coolest web application development framework, for Python developers. Django is a free and open source web development framework (released under BSD license). Django is easy to learn and allows Rapid Development with clean and pragmatic approach (in design).
Recently Django version 1.4 has released but in Ubuntu 12.04 beta or 11.10 or any older versions you can’t get the latest version from the official package repository (In 12.04 Beta 2, the latest version was 1.3). So if you want to try latest version of Django on Ubuntu, then you must install it either from a PPA or manually from source code or by other means.
How to Install Django in Ubuntu
Django 1.4 requires Python 2.5 or later but you shouldn’t wory about that because in Ubuntu, Python 2.7 is installed by default. Open a terminal and execute these commands (you need sudo privilege, just enter your login password) :
tar xzvf Django-1.4.tar.gz
sudo python setup.py install
