django-host-settings is a Django app which helps you create and load settings unique to each host running your Django project.
$ easy_install django-host-settings
$ git clone git://github.com/sandersnewmedia/django-host-settings.git $ cd django-host-settings $ python setup.py install
INSTALLED_APPS = ( ... 'django_host_settings' )
