Summary: Buildout recipe for Django
Author: Jeroen Vloothuis

Description: Description
This buildout recipe can be used to create a setup for Django. It will
automatically download Django and install it in the buildout's
sandbox. You can use either a release version of Django or a
subversion checkout (by using `trunk` instead of a version number.
You can see an example of how to use the recipe below::
parts = satchmo django
eggs = ipython
recipe =
url =
md5sum = 659a4845c1c731be5cfe29bfcc5d14b1
recipe = djangorecipe
version = trunk
settings = development
eggs = ${buildout:eggs}
extra-paths =
project = dummyshop
Supported options
The recipe supports the following options.
This option sets the name for your project. The recipe will create a
basic structure if the project is not already there.
Use this instead of the project option when you want to use an egg
as the project. This disables the generation of the project
This option can be used to specify a specific Python version which can be a
different version from the one used to run the buildout.
The version argument can accept a few different types of
arguments. You can specify `trunk`. In this case it will do a
checkout of the Django trunk. Another option is to specify a release
number like `0.96.2`. This will download the release
tarball. Finally you can specify a full svn url (including the
revision number). An example of this would be
You can set the name of the settings file which is to be used with
this option. This is useful if you want to have a different
production setup from your development setup. It defaults to
Set this to a folder somewhere on you system to speed up
installation. The recipe will use this folder as a cache for a
downloaded version of Django.
All paths specified here will be used to extend the default Python
path for the `bin/*` scripts.
Adds paths found from a site `.pth` file to the extra-paths.
Useful for things like Pinax which maintains its own external_libs dir.
The name of the script created in the bin folder. This script is the
equivalent of the `` Django normally creates. By default it
uses the name of the section (the part between the `[ ]`).
An extra script is generated in the bin folder when this is set to
`true`. This can be used with mod_wsgi to deploy the project. The
name of the script is `control-script.wsgi`.
In case the WSGI server you're using does not allow printing to stdout,
you can set this variable to a filesystem path - all stdout/stderr data
is redirected to the log instead of printed
Like `wsgi` this creates an extra script within the bin folder. This
script can be used with an FCGI deployment.
If you want a script in the bin folder to run all the tests for a
specific set of apps this is the option you would use. Set this to
the list of app labels which you want to be tested.
This is the name of the testrunner which will be created. It
defaults to `test`.
All following options only have effect when the project specified by
the project option has not been created already.
You can set this to a specific url conf. It will use project.urls by
The secret to use for the ``, it generates a random
string by default.
Another example
The next example shows you how to use some more of the options::
parts = django extras
eggs =
recipe = iw.recipe.subversion
urls = django-command-extensions django-mptt
recipe = djangorecipe
version = trunk
settings = development
project = exampleproject
wsgi = true
eggs =
test =
Example using .pth files
Pinax uses a .pth file to add a bunch of libraries to its path; we can
specify it's directory to get the libraries it specified added to our
parts = PIL
recipe = zc.recipe.egg:custom
egg = PIL
find-links =
recipe = iw.recipe.subversion
urls = pinax
recipe = djangorecipe
version = 1.0.2
eggs = PIL
project = myproject
settings = settings
extra-paths = ${buildout:directory}/myproject/apps
pth-files = ${svncode:location}/pinax/libs/external_libs
wsgi = true
Above, we use stock Pinax for pth-files and extra-paths paths for
apps, and our own project for the path that will be found first in the
list. Note that we expect our project to be checked out (e.g., by
svn:external) directly under this directory in to 'myproject'.
Example with a different Python version
To use a different Python version from the one that ran buildout in the
generated script use something like::
parts = myproject
executable = /some/special/python
recipe = djangorecipe
version = 1.0.2
project = myproject
python = special-python
Example configuration for mod_wsgi
If you want to deploy a project using mod_wsgi you could use this
example as a starting point::
<Directory /path/to/buildout>
Order deny,allow
Allow from all
ServerName my.rocking.server
CustomLog /var/log/apache2/my.rocking.server/access.log combined
ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/my.rocking.server/error.log
WSGIScriptAlias / /path/to/buildout/bin/django.wsgi
- Applied fix for the change in WSGI script generation. The previous release
did not work properly.
- When running again with non-newest set the recipe will no longer update
the Subversion checkout. Thanks to vinilios for the patch.
- The WSGI and FCGI scripts are now generated using Buildout's own system. This
makes them more similar to the generated manage script with regard to the
setup of paths. Thanks to Jannis Leidel for the patch.
- Paths from eggs and extra-paths now get precedence over the default
system path (fixes #370420). Thanks to Horst Gutmann for the patch.
- The generated WSGI script now uses the `python` option if present. This
fixes #361695.
- Fixed a problem when not running in verbose mode (fixes #375151).
- Removed dependency on setuptools_bzr since it does not seem to work
like I expected.
- Changed the download code to use urllib2. This should make it work
from behind proxies (fixes #362822). Thanks to pauld for the patch.
- Fixed a problem with the new WSGI logging option #348797. Thanks to
Bertrand Mathieu for the patch.
- Disable generation of the WSGI log if "wsgilog" isn't set, thanks to
Jacob Kaplan-Moss for the patch.
- Updated buildout.cfg and .bzrignore, thanks Jacob Kaplan-Moss.
- Added an option to specify a log file for output redirection from
the WSGI script. Thanks to Guido Wesdorp for the patch.
- Subversion aliases are now supported (something like
svn+mystuff://myjunk). Thanks to Remco for the patch.
- Update to move pth-files finder from the __init__ method to the
install method so it runs in buildout-order, else it looks for pth
files in dirs that may not yet exist. Thanks to Chris Shenton for
the update to his original patch.
- Update to make the previously added pth-files option better
- Added "pth-files" option to add libraries to extra-paths from
site .pth files. Thanks to Chris Shenton for the patch.
- The recipe now supports creating a FCGI script. Thanks to Jannis
Leidel for the patch.
- When downloading a Django recipe for the first time the recipe now
properly reports the url it is downloading from.
- Specifying a user name within a subversion url now works. The code
that determined the revision has been updated. This fixes issue
#274004. Thanks to Remco for the patch.
- Updated the template for creating new projects. It now uses the
current admin system when generating it's `` file. This fixes
issue #276255. Thanks to Roland for the patch.
- Re-upload since CHANGES.txt was missing from the release
- The recipe no longer executes subversion to determine whether the
versions is to be downloaded using subversion. This fixes issue
#271145. Thanks to Kapil Thangavelu for the patch.
- Changed the `pythonpath` option to `extra-paths`. This makes the
recipe more consistent with other recipes (see issue #270908).
- Another go at fixing the updating problem (#250811) by making sure
the update method is always called. It would not be called in the
previous version since the recipe wrote a random secret (if it
wasn't specified) to the options for use with a template. Buildout
saw this as a change in options and therefore always decided to
un-install & install.
- When both projectegg and wsgi=True are specified, the generated wsgi
file did not have the correct settings file in it. This has been
fixed with a patch from Dan Fairs.
- The recipe now has logging. All print statements have been replaced
and a few extra logging calls have been added. This makes the recipe
more informative about long running tasks. Thanks erny for the patch
from issue #260628.
- The recipe no longer expects the top level directory name in a
release tarball to be consistent with the version number. This fixes
issue #260097. Thanks to erny for reporting this issue and
suggesting a solution.
- Revision pinns for the svn checkout now stay pinned when re-running
the buildout. This fixes issue #250811. Thanks to Remco for
reporting this.
- Added an option to specify an egg to use as the project. This
disables the code which creates the basic project structure. Thanks
to Dan Fairs for the patch from issue #252647.
- Fixed the previous release which was broken due to a missing
manifest file
- The settings option is fixed so that it supports arbitrary depth
settings paths (example; `conf.customer.development`).
- The version argument now excepts a full svn url as well. You can use
this to get a branch or fix any url to a specific revision with the
standard svn @ syntax
- The wsgi script is no longer made executable and readable only by
the user who ran buildout. This avoids problems with deployment.
