Create your virtualenv with the same name as the project, activate it and install Django.
Create your project by running:
django-admin.py startproject -e py -e conf -e ini -e nginx --template=https://github.com/LucianU/django-startproject/zipball/master <project>
<project> with the name of your project.
Install the requirements in the virtualenv:
cd /path/to/project pip install -r requirements/common.pip
Create a database and put the credentials in your
Sync the database:
python manage.py syncdb
Run the server and visit the site in the browser. You should see the welcome message from Django:
python manage.py runserver 127.0.0.1:8000
Finally, you can look at the different files in the
confs directory and its
subdirectories and adjust the values as you wish. Replace the placeholders with
your wanted values. Also, go into the
fabfile/targets.py file and adjust the
env vars as you see fit.
This project template is based on a certain stack of applications. These are:
- pip as package manager - virtualenv and virtualenvwrapper for dependency containment - postgresql as a database - nginx and uwsgi as a proxy and application server respectively - supervisor for process management - memcached for caching - fabric + git for deployment
fabfile package contains several modules that provide tasks for
deployment, project setup and interaction with the applications used.
The most basic idea is that when you run a task you have to specify the
deployment enviroment on which you want the task to run. To do that you use a
task specific to that environment, one of
here corresponds to your local machine,
stag to the staging environment
prod to the production environment. For example, to setup the project
on your machine, you run:
fab here first_deploy
This task clones the project in the current directory, creates a virtualenv,
installs all the requirements, synchronizes the database and collects the
static files, so make sure you've installed the big dependencies, setup the
database and populated the
local.py settings file with the credentials.
After that, every time you want to deploy changes to production, make sure you've pushed them to the central repo and then run:
fab prod deploy
This task updates the code and checks out the right branch, makes sure all
requirements are installed, runs
collectstatic and then
