RGV Regional Science and Engineering Fair
This is the registration site for the RGV Regional Science and Engineering Fair.
We run this registration site on Heroku, and have included an example of a .env file used to define the environment variables required to configure the application. These can also be used with Foreman to manage sample, for those interested in running this there as well.
This site is deployable using any wsgi server interface.
python manage.py runserver will get you a development server,
but for example, you can run the app in a near production ready mode via
gunicorn -w 4 RGVRSEF:app (assuming you have gunicorn
If you use the included Procfile in conjunction with Foreman, you can also
foreman start to start a production rated server. The included Procfile
uses Gunicorn, so that must be installed to use Foreman.
For some examples on flask deployment, see the flask documentation section Deployment Options.
Again, we use Heroku for deployment, and for more on Heroku deployment of
this app, see
