Create a New application in your Django Project

As we have seen in the creation on our project , we know that a project is a collection of applications. So now we will see how to create an application 

Type the command given below in your terminal to create an app :

$ python manage.py startapp appname

Example:

$ python manage.py startapp accounts

Once the app is created, the folders will look like this,

>accounts
>funda
>manage.py

Register your app in your project.

Whenever we create a new app, do not forget to register the app in the settings.py. You will find the settings.py inside the project folder.

-funda
    -__init__.py
    -asgi.py
    -settings.py
    -urls.py
    -wsgi.py
>manage.py

Open the settings.py and add your application name in the INSTALLED_APPS list as shown below. 

INSTALLED_APPS = [
    'django.contrib.admin',
    'django.contrib.auth',
    'django.contrib.contenttypes',
    'django.contrib.sessions',
    'django.contrib.messages',
    'django.contrib.staticfiles',

    'accounts', //add your appname here and don't forget to add the comma(,) in the last to avoid errors.
