Getting started

Create your project in a virtualenv directory (see the virtualenv documentation)

$ virtualenv my_project
$ source my_project/bin/activate
$ pip install nefertari
$ pcreate -s nefertari_starter my_project
$ cd my_project
$ pserve local.ini


  • Python 2.7, 3.3 or 3.4
  • Elasticsearch for Elasticsearch-powered resources (see models and requests)
  • Postgres or Mongodb or Your Data Store™


  • For a more complete example of a Pyramid project using Nefertari, you can take a look at the Example Project.
