Django scripting: “AppRegistryNotReady: Apps aren’t loaded yet” solution!

If you want to make a simple script that wants to import your application built on top of the Django framework, you would probably do this code:

import django
from app.models import MyModel

You will probably get this error:

django.core.exceptions.AppRegistryNotReady: Apps aren't loaded yet


Don’t panic!
The solution is to run your application’s setup() before imports, as follows:

import django

if __name__ == '__main__':
    # import AFTER setup
    from app.models import MyModel
    # from now I can access MyModel!!
