Pyramid + SQLALchemy quickstart repository for OpenShift Express

branch: master
README.rst

Pyramid on Red Hat's OpenShift Express

This quickstart helps you get up and running with a Pyramid installation on OpenShift. It automatically handles creating a Python virtualenv, populating a MySQL database, and deploying your application to the cloud.

Features

  • Completely free, thanks to Red Hat's OpenShift Express
  • MySQL database automatically setup for your application
  • Dynamic database configuration at runtime. No passwords stored in your configs.
  • Your application's test suite is run after each push
  • Automatic deployment upon git push
  • No need to think about servers, let alone apache/mod_wsgi configuration

The fastest method

You can easily deploy a pre-configured Pyramid + MySQL application to the OpenShift cloud with a single command, using the openshift-quickstarter tool: http://github.com/lmacken/openshift-quickstarter

./openshift-quickstarter EMAIL DOMAIN APPNAME pyramid

That's all it takes. You can now view your application at:

http://APPNAME-DOMAIN.rhcloud.com
http://lewk.org/img/pyramid-quickstart.png

Notice the 'test name' on the default homepage, which is pulled in from our database.

The manual method

If you don't want to use the openshift-quickstarter, you can easily create a new OpenShift WSGI application and merge this quickstart into it manually:

rhc app create -a pyramidapp -t python-2.7 -l your@email.com
rhc cartridge add -a pyramidapp -c mysql-5.1 -l your@email.com
cd pyramidapp
git remote add upstream -m master git://github.com/lmacken/pyramid-openshift-quickstart.git
git pull -s recursive -X theirs upstream master
git push

Monitoring your logs
