Haystack configuration from environment variable

  • Free software: MIT license

Supported Backends

Installation is simple:

Configure your Haystack connections in from HAYSTACK_CONNECTIONS (default is optional):

HAYSTACK_CONNECTIONS = {'default': dj_haystack_url.config(default='simple')}

Parse an arbitrary Haystack connection URL:

HAYSTACK_CONNECTIONS = {'default': dj_haystack_url.parse('simple')}
