Django Management Commands

A quick minor efficiency tip for today that'll make your life at the Django command line incrementally better.

You're using django-extensions in your project, right? If not, go and rectify that problem immediately.

The best feature™ that django-extensions provides is the shell_plus command. You know the worst thing about `shell_plus`? The name. That's a long name to type out into your shell, especially since it's snake_case, and I type the command approximately 15,000 times per day. Wouldn't it be nice to alias `shell_plus` to something like `sh`? Well, now you can!
