cookiecutter command not found after installing with pip
You can also run that with
python -m cookiecutter https://github.com/pydanny/cookiecutter-django

sudo apt-get install cookiecutterinstalls something called cookiecutter doesn't mean it is the same cookiecutter from pip. In fact, they have nothing in common. One is a cookie cutter for python, and the other is for django.
- This is the cookiecutter on launchpad, the one you installed with apt-get: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/cookiecutter

mkvirtualenv myProject(assuming you have virtualenv and virtualenvwrapper installed, added to
~/.bashrcand bash restarted, either restarting terminal gui, or
- Then within the
(myProject) $~prompt, proceed with your installations, namely:
sudo apt install python-pip
pip install cookiecutter
- Then proceed as normal,
Unless you plan to spin up Ubuntu virtualbox instances for each Django project you wish to start, I will recommend you use virtualenv to keep things clean.
