Running Django on PyPy boils down to installing both and running Django with pypy instead of python.

Download a PyPy binary from and follow the install instructions there.

Run Django the usual way with PyPy:

pypy ./ syncdb
pypy ./ runserver

PyPy runs the templating engine faster than CPython, but so far DB access is slower for some drivers.

Some C-based DB drivers don't work with PyPy. See the Compatibility Wiki for an overview of what works.
