Repo layout
===========
wsgi/ - Externally exposed wsgi code goes
wsgi/static/ - Public static content gets served here
libs/ - Additional libraries
data/ - For not-externally exposed wsgi code
setup.py - Standard setup.py, specify deps here
../data - For persistent data (also env var: OPENSHIFT_DATA_DIR)
.openshift/action_hooks/pre_build - Script that gets run every git push before the build
.openshift/action_hooks/build - Script that gets run every git push as part of the build process (on the CI system if available)
.openshift/action_hooks/deploy - Script that gets run every git push after build but before the app is restarted
.openshift/action_hooks/post_deploy - Script that gets run every git push after the app is restarted
Environment Variables
=====================
OpenShift Express provides several environment variables to reference for ease
of use. The following list are some common variables but far from exhaustive:
os.environ['OPENSHIFT_APP_NAME'] - Application name
os.environ['OPENSHIFT_GEAR_DIR'] - Application dir
os.environ['OPENSHIFT_DATA_DIR'] - For persistent storage (between pushes)
os.environ['OPENSHIFT_TMP_DIR'] - Temp storage (unmodified files deleted after 10 days)
When embedding a database using rhc-ctl-app, you can reference environment
variables for username, host and password:
os.environ['OPENSHIFT_DB_HOST'] - DB host
os.environ['OPENSHIFT_DB_PORT'] - DB Port
os.environ['OPENSHIFT_DB_USERNAME'] - DB Username
os.environ['OPENSHIFT_DB_PASSWORD'] - DB Password
To get a full list of environment variables, simply add a line in your
.openshift/action_hooks/build script that says "export" and push.
Notes about layout
==================
Please leave wsgi, libs and data directories but feel free to create additional
directories if needed.
Note: Every time you push, everything in your remote repo dir gets recreated
please store long term items (like an sqlite database) in ../data which will
persist between pushes of your repo.
Notes about setup.py
====================
Adding deps to the install_requires will have the openshift server actually
install those deps at git push time.
