Organize Django settings into multiple files and directories. Easily override and modify settings. Use wildcards in settings file paths and mark settings files as optional.

Read this blog post for more information. Also, check this example project.

Requirements

While this package will most likely work with the most versions of django, we do not officially support any versions except the latest release and the current LTS version, which are 1.11 and 2.2 right now.

This package has no dependencies itself.

In case you need older python / django versions support, then consider using older versions.

Installation

pip install django-split-settings

Usage

Replace your existing settings.py with a list of components that make up your Django settings. Preferably create a settings package that contains all the files.

Here's a minimal example:

from split_settings.tools import optional, include

include(
    'components/base.py',
    'components/database.py',
    optional('local_settings.py')
)

In the example, the files base.py and database.py are included in that order from the subdirectory called components/. local_settings.py in the same directory is included if it exists.

Note: The local context is passed on to each file, so each following file can access and modify the settings declared in the previous files.

We also made a in-depth tutorial.

Tips and tricks

You can use wildcards in file paths:

include('components/my_app/*.py')

Note that files are included in the order that glob returns them, probably in the same order as what ls -U would list them. The files are NOT in alphabetical order.

You can modify common settings in environment settings simply importing them

# local_settings.py
from components.base import INSTALLED_APPS

INSTALLED_APPS += (
  'raven.contrib.django.raven_compat',
)
