Update: Django works fine with PyPy now, instructions for getting each better left for install pages.

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.
