Django-environ allows you to utilize 12factor inspired environment variables to configure your Django application.

Project description


Django-environ
==============

|pypi| |unix_build| |windows_build| |coverage| |contributors| |license| |say_thanks|

**django-environ** allows you to use `Twelve-factor methodology`_ to configure your Django application with environment variables.

|cover|

.. _settings.py:

.. code-block:: python

import environ
env = environ.Env(
# set casting, default value
DEBUG=(bool, False)
)
# reading .env file
environ.Env.read_env()

# False if not in os.environ
DEBUG = env('DEBUG')

# Raises django's ImproperlyConfigured exception if SECRET_KEY not in os.environ
SECRET_KEY = env('SECRET_KEY')

# Parse database connection url strings like psql://user:pass@127.0.0.1:8458/db
DATABASES = {
# read os.environ['DATABASE_URL'] and raises ImproperlyConfigured exception if not found
'default': env.db(),
# read os.environ['SQLITE_URL']
'extra': env.db('SQLITE_URL', default='sqlite:////tmp/my-tmp-sqlite.db')
}

CACHES = {
# read os.environ['CACHE_URL'] and raises ImproperlyConfigured exception if not found
'default': env.cache(),
# read os.environ['REDIS_URL']
'redis': env.cache('REDIS_URL')
}

The idea of this package is to unify a lot of packages that make the same stuff:
Take a string from ``os.environ``, parse and cast it to some of useful python typed variables.
To do that and to use the `12factor`_ approach, some connection strings are expressed as url,
so this package can parse it and return a ``urllib.parse.ParseResult``.
These strings from ``os.environ`` are loaded from a `.env` file and filled in ``os.environ`` with ``setdefault`` method,
to avoid to overwrite the real environ.
A similar approach is used in `Two Scoops of Django`_ book and explained in `12factor-django`_ article.

Using django-environ you can stop to make a lot of unversioned ``settings_*.py`` to configure your app.
See `cookiecutter-django`_ for a concrete example on using with a django project.

Feature Support
---------------
- Fast and easy multi environment for deploy
- Fill ``os.environ`` with .env file variables
- Variables casting (see `Supported types`_ below)
- Url variables exploded to django specific package settings

Django-environ officially supports Django 1.8 ~ 2.0.


Installation
------------

.. code-block:: bash

$ pip install django-environ

*NOTE: No need to add it to INSTALLED_APPS.*


Then create a ``.env`` file:

.. code-block:: bash

DEBUG=on
SECRET_KEY=your-secret-key
DATABASE_URL=psql://urser:un-githubbedpassword@127.0.0.1:8458/database
SQLITE_URL=sqlite:///my-local-sqlite.db
CACHE_URL=memcache://127.0.0.1:11211,127.0.0.1:11212,127.0.0.1:11213
REDIS_URL=rediscache://127.0.0.1:6379/1?client_class=django_redis.client.DefaultClient&password=ungithubbed-secret

And use it with `settings.py`_ above.
Don't forget to add ``.env`` in your ``.gitignore`` (tip: add ``.env.example`` with a template of your variables).

Tips
----

Using unsafe characters in URLs
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In order to use unsafe characters you have to encode with ``urllib.parse.encode`` before you set into ``.env`` file.

.. code-block:: bash

DATABASE_URL=mysql://user:%23password@127.0.0.1:3306/dbname

See https://perishablepress.com/stop-using-unsafe-characters-in-urls/ for reference.

Multiple redis cache locations
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For redis cache, `multiple master/slave or shard locations <http://niwinz.github.io/django-redis/latest/#_pluggable_clients>`_ can be configured as follows:

.. code-block:: bash

CACHE_URL='rediscache://master:6379,slave1:6379,slave2:6379/1'

Email settings
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In order to set email configuration for django you can use this code:

.. code-block:: python

EMAIL_CONFIG = env.email_url(
'EMAIL_URL', default='smtp://user@:password@localhost:25')

vars().update(EMAIL_CONFIG)

SQLite urls
~~~~~~~~~~~

SQLite connects to file based databases. The same URL format is used, omitting the hostname,
and using the "file" portion as the filename of the database.
This has the effect of four slashes being present for an absolute

file path: ``sqlite:////full/path/to/your/database/file.sqlite``.

Nested lists
------------

Some settings such as Django's ``ADMINS`` make use of nested lists. You can use something like this to handle similar cases.

.. code-block:: python

# DJANGO_ADMINS=John:john@admin.com,Jane:jane@admin.com
ADMINS = [x.split(':') for x in env.list('DJANGO_ADMINS')]

# or use more specific function

from email.utils import getaddresses

# DJANGO_ADMINS=Full Name <email-with-name@example.com>,anotheremailwithoutname@example.com
ADMINS = getaddresses([env('DJANGO_ADMINS')])

Multiline value
---------------

You can set a multiline variable value:

.. code-block:: python

# MULTILINE_TEXT=Hello\\nWorld
>>> print env.str('MULTILINE_TEXT', multiline=True)
Hello
World


Proxy value
-----------

You can set a value prefixed by ``$`` to use as a proxy to another variable value:

.. code-block:: python

# BAR=FOO
# PROXY=$BAR
>>> print env.str('PROXY')
FOO

Multiple env files
------------------
It is possible to have multiple env files and select one using environment variables.

.. code-block:: python
env = environ.Env()
env.read_env(env.str('ENV_PATH', '.env'))

Now ``ENV_PATH=other-env ./manage.py runserver`` uses ``other-env`` while ``./manage.py runserver`` uses ``.env``.
