Django-Heroku (Python Library)
This is a Django library for Heroku applications that ensures a seamless deployment and development experience.
This library provides:
- Settings configuration (Static files / WhiteNoise).
- Logging configuration.
- Test runner (important for Heroku CI).
Django 2.0 is targeted, but older versions of Django should be compatible. Only Python 3 is supported.
Usage of Django-Heroku
settings.py, at the very bottom:
… # Configure Django App for Heroku. import django_heroku django_heroku.settings(locals())
This will automatically configure
ALLOWED_HOSTS, WhiteNoise (for static assets), Logging, and Heroku CI for your application.
Bonus points! If you set the
SECRET_KEY environment variable, it will automatically be used in your Django settings, too!
settings() also accepts keyword arguments that can be passed
False as a value, which will disable automatic configuration for their specific areas of responsibility:
You can also just use this library to provide a test runner for your Django application, for use on Heroku CI:
import django_heroku TEST_RUNNER = 'django_heroku.HerokuDiscoverRunner'
