This package simplifies running a Django app on Heroku platform.

Project description

This has been forked from django-heroku because it was abandoned and then renamed to django-on-heroku because old project has been archived.

Current updates:

  • renamed package from django-heroku to django-on-heroku

  • changed psycopg2 to psycopg2-binary so it works and is installable

  • added installation instructions

  • fixed wipe’ing tables in Postgres

  • whitenoise.middleware.WhiteNoiseMiddleware is injected after

This is a Django library for Heroku applications that ensures a seamless deployment and development experience.

This library provides:

  • Settings configuration (Static files / WhiteNoise).

  • Logging configuration.

  • Test runner (important for Heroku CI).

Django 2.0 is targeted, but older versions of Django should be compatible. Only Python 3 is supported.


pip install django-on-heroku

Usage of Django-Heroku

In, at the very bottom:

# Configure Django App for Heroku.
import django_on_heroku

This will automatically configure DATABASE_URL, ALLOWED_HOSTS, WhiteNoise (for static assets), Logging, and Heroku CI for your application.

Bonus points!

If you set the SECRET_KEY environment variable, it will automatically be used in your Django settings, too!

If you set the CONN_MAX_AGE environment variable, it will automatically be used in your database settings, too!

Enabling Functionality

settings() accepts keyword arguments that are by default set to False

  • geodjango - set it to True if you want to use GeoDjango in our app

Disabling Functionality

settings() also accepts keyword arguments that can be passed False as a value, which will disable automatic configuration for their specific areas of responsibility:

  • databases

  • test_runner

  • staticfiles

  • allowed_hosts

  • logging

  • secret_key

  • db_ssl_required

You can also just use this library to provide a test runner for your Django application, for use on Heroku CI:

import django_on_heroku
TEST_RUNNER = 'django_on_heroku.HerokuDiscoverRunner'
