Setting up django should be fast and easy.

I am a freelance developer. Lately, I've been heavily using Django to make my development process faster.

Each time I needed to create a project, it was a pain for me to copy-paste code from previous projects on and on.

Fortunately, to help myself out, I made a little script. I just run with a curl call alongside bash. And Boom! Installed! Everything I needed was there.

Hope this might help you too. You can fork it. Make it your own, and set up your own environment. It is not more repetitive.
Also, It will work with always the latest Django project. The project has no hardcoded Django version attached to it. :) + It has some goodies in it.

So, check it out!
