How to Check Django Version

serhatteker profile image Serhat Teker Originally published at tech.serhatteker.com on ・1 min read

You can use one of the below methods to check which version of Django you
installed:

  1. Using python bin:

    $ python -m django --version
    3.0.5
    
  2. Using pip freeze:

    $ pip freeze
    asgiref==3.2.7
    Django==3.0.5
    pytz==2020.1
    sqlparse==0.3.1
    

    This method gives you all python packages that you installed. To see only Django:

    $ pip freeze | grep Django
    Django==3.0.5
    
  3. Using pip show:

    $ pip show django
    Name: Django

    [GCC 7.4.0] on linux
    Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
    

    then type:

    >>> import django
    >>> django.VERSION
    (3, 0, 5, 'final', 0)
    

All done!
