A web based console for Django's development server built using Tornado

Project description

This is a Tornado server built to run the Django builtin ‘runserver’ command.

This uses WebSockets, so modern browsers only.

Why on earth would one want to do such a crazy thing?

The main reason this was built was for the use case of a team environment where the developers are using Vagrant for local development and want to give the less terminal savvy users an easy way to run and control the Django development server.

How do I use this?

For testing purposes:

  1. Clone this repository.
  2. Create a new virtualenv
  3. Install Django & tornado via pip
  4. Run the fujita.py script with the command to run the testproject (see below)
  5. Visit the Fujita Console in your browser

To distribute a Fujita Console in your project simply list django-fujita in your requirements and then add a fujita.py script to the root.

Running the fujita.py script

You need to tell the script how to run your development server through the --command option.

If you’re following the steps above then you’ll want to use something similar to the following command:

./fujita.py --command "/home/user/.virtualenvs/fujita/bin/python /home/user/projects/django-fujita/testproject/manage.py runserver 0:8000"

The above command assumes you have a virtualenv named fujita in the .virtualenvs directory in your home. It also assumes that you have a projects directory in your home and the django-fujita repository has been checked out there. Adjust for your setup.

The command is run under /bin/sh so you can set environment variables by prefixing them in front of the command:

./fujita.py --command "DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE=project.settings.dev django-admin.py runserver 0:8000"
