Django on OpenShift Express

This git repository helps you get up and running quickly w/ a Django installation on OpenShift Express. The Django project name used in this repo is 'openshift' but you can feel free to change it. Right now the backend is sqlite3 and the database runtime is @ $OPENSHIFT_DATA_DIR/sqlite3.db.

When you push this application up for the first time, the sqlite database is copied from wsgi/openshift/sqlite3.db. This is the stock database that is created when 'python syncdb' is run with only the admin app installed.

You can delete the database from your git repo after the first push (you probably should for security). On subsequent pushes, a 'python syncdb' is executed to make sure that any models you added are created in the DB. If you do anything that requires an alter table, you could add the alter statements in GIT_ROOT/.openshift/action_hooks/alter.sql and then use GIT_ROOT/.openshift/action_hooks/deploy to execute that script (make sure to back up your database w/ 'rhc app snapshot save' first :) )
