Django template ready to use in Heroku and OpenShift without any specific modification.

Project initialization

To start a project run the following command:

$ cookiecutter https://github.com/pbacterio/cookiecutter-django-paas
project_name (default is "myproject")?

Start the git repository.

$ cd myproject
$ git init .
$ git add .
$ git commit -m "initial project version"

Install dependencies listed in requirements.txt. I suggest use pip and virtualenvironment.

$ virtualenvironment venv
$ source venv/bin/activate
$ pip install -r requirements.txt

Running local server

Just use foreman.

$ foreman start

Now your application is listening on port 5000. If you want to use other port number run the command like this:

$ PORT=8080 foreman start

Deploy to Heroku

$ heroku apps:create myproject
$ heroku addons:add heroku-postgresql
$ git push heroku
$ heroku run python manage.py syncdb

Deploy to OpenShift

$ rhc app create myproject python-2.7 --no-git
$ git remote add openshift ssh://2516000083533c2d2c500446@myproject.rhcloud.com/~/git/myproject.git/
$ rhc add-cartridge postgresql-9.2 --app myproject
$ ssh 2516000083533c2d2c500446@myproject.rhcloud.com
[myproject.rhcloud.com 2516000083533c2d2c500446]\> cd app-root/repo
[myproject.rhcloud.com repo]\> python manage.py syncdb

Other PAAS providers?

I'm working to support dotCloud, Gondor and others. Feel free to colaborate. 😄
