Django is a high-level Python Web framework, which makes it easier to create web sites using Python.  A Web framework is a set of components that provide a standard way to develop websites fast and easily. It provides a set of tools and functionalities that solves many common problems associated with Web development, such as security features, database access, sessions and templates etc.

The latest official version of Django is 4.0.4.

Steps to check Django version

Follow the following steps to check the installed Django version on your machine:

Step 1: Open the Command line interpreter and go to the folder where your Django is installed using cd command or you can directly go to the Django file location and type cmd, this will directly open the command line interpreter with the specified path.

Step 2: Once you've successfully had the Django path on the cmd then type the python -m django -version command this will give the version of Django installed on your machine.

Step 3: Another way is to type django-admin version command on same Django path in the command line interpreter.

Step 4: Open your Pycharm (or any other compiler like VS code, here I am using Pycharm but the steps will be the same in every compiler), once you’ve opened your Pycharm, go on any previous Django project and then on Pychram terminal type python manage.py version command.

Here, medassist is my project name (you can open any Django project to check the version.)

Step 5: One of the ways is to open the python.exe file (you'll get the python.exe file where your Django is installed) and type –

import pkg_resources

Note: Write this code one by one else it will show the error.
