Before you can build the ShapeEditor application, make sure that you have installed the following libraries and tools introduced in Chapter 3, Python Libraries for Geospatial Development and Chapter 6, GIS in the Database:
You will also need to download and install Django. Django (https://djangoproject.com) comes with GeoDjango built-in, so once you've installed Django itself you're all set to go. Click on the Download link on the Django website and download the latest official version of the Django software. We'll be using Django 1.4 for the ShapeEditor.
If your computer runs Microsoft Windows, you may need to download a utility to decompress the
.tar.gz file before you can use it.
