A simple Django app to store/access project wide persistent settings.

Project description


Django FastSettings stores settings in the database and syncs it to redis, so that access is "fast".
This will work without redis, it will simply fetch from the database each time.


pip install django-fastsettings

Quick start

1. Add "fastsettings" to your INSTALLED_APPS setting like this::


2. Add the Redis connection settings to the django file
# PROJECT SETTINGS (used in fastsettings) #
REDIS_HOST = 'localhost'
REDIS_PASSWORD = "your_redis_password"

3. For logging, add a handler for "fastsettings_logger" in your logging configuration::

4. Run `python migrate` to create the fastsettings models.

5. Start the development server and visit
to create a fastsettings (you'll need the Admin app enabled).
