Simple helpers for setting up your Django settings file
Inside your settings.py file, do the following:
from dj_settings_helpers import create_project_dir, get_env project_dir = create_project_dir(__file__)
Now, you can use project_dir to generate paths relative to your settings.py file and get_env to load environment variables.
For example, you can use it to add your project_root/templates directory to your TEMPLATES_DIRS setting like this:
TEMPLATES_DIRS = ( project_dir('templates'), )
You can use the get_env variable to pull in environment variables with defaults that depend on the ENVIRONMENT variable. For example, you can set multiple default BROKER_HOST variables for Celery like this:
BROKER_HOST = get_env('BROKER_HOST', 'default.rabbitmq.example.com', dev='localhost', staging='staging.rabbitmq.example.com')
If your ENVIRONMENT variable is equal to dev, the localhost string is used; if set to staging, it is staging.rabbitmq.example.com, and all other environments use default.rabbitmq.example.com. All of these are overridden by the presence of an environment variable named BROKER_HOST.
Please see the inline documentation in dj_settings_helpers.py for full examples and usage.
pip install dj-settings-helpers
