Start Django projects with sensitive data outside of the global settings module

Project description

Build Status


Creates and uses the installed Django project template to keep sensitive data out of global settings.


To install django-safe-project run:

pip install django-safe-project

Or download the latest release here and install by running:

python install


When installed, call

django-safe-project <projectname>

instead of

django-admin startproject <projectname>

This will create a separate module in the project path named containing all the things you don’t want to ever place in any sort of VCS ever. will then be gitignored and its contents imported into the main module.

Currently the list of settings this handles are:

  • SECRET_KEY (obviously)
  • DATABASES (duh!!!)
