Usage
-----
-Configure your database in ``settings.py``::
+Configure your database in ``settings.py`` from ``DATABASE_URL``::
+
+ DATABASES = {'default': dj_database_url.config()}
+
+Parse an arbitrary Database URL::
+
+ DATABASES = {'default': dj_database_url.parse('postgres://...')}
+
+Supported databases
+-------------------
+
+Support currently exists for PostgreSQL, PostGIS, MySQL and SQLite.
- DATABASES['default'] = dj_database_url.config()
+SQLite connects to file based databases. The same URL format is used, omitting
+the hostname, and using the "file" portion as the filename of the database.
+This has the effect of four slashes being present for an absolute file path:
+``sqlite:////full/path/to/your/database/file.sqlite``.
-Nice and simple.
