Basic manual setup

Create a in your project directory. You can see example of a fabfile below. If you run into problems with settings where fabric cannot locate settings add sys.path.append(os.path.dirname(__file__)) to your fabfile.

Here is an example of an fabfile .. code-block:

from fabric.decorators import task
from fabric.state import env
from django_fabric import App

env.user = 'web'
env.hosts = ['']

site = App(
        'prod': '/var/www/example_site',
        'prod': ''
        'prod': 'restart prod'

deploy = task(site.deploy)
test = task(site.test)
