a generic fabric utility class for django projects

Project Description

django-fabric is written to make writing fabfiles for django projects easier and faster. It contains the basic stuff one would expect from a django setup with git and virtualenv. The code expects the project to have a certain structure as seen below. It is possible to customize the activation of the virtualenvironment. .. code-block:

project-dir/
  venv/ # virtualenv
  project-package/
  manage.py
  fabfile.py

Installation

Run pip install django-fabric

Usage

There is two options to get get a basic setup, both will make you able to run fab deploy:prod and fab test.

Init script

There is a init script that will guide you through the generation of a basic fabfile that utilises django-fabric. Run it with the command .. code-block:

django-fabric-init

Basic manual setup

Create a fabfile.py 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 = ['server1.example.com']

site = App(
    project_paths={
        'prod': '/var/www/example_site',
    },
    urls={
        'prod': 'http://example.com'
    },
    restart_command={
        'prod': 'restart prod'
    },
    project_package='example',
    test_settings='example.settings.test',
)

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