Django application to provide a web interface to set a yet another django's settings

Project description

Django application to provide a web interface to set a yet another django’s settings.

Basic usage

You can set a setting file containing some key-value pairs like django’s Then a web interface to set setting values will be provided automatically.

The value in the setting file is handled as default value of web interface. A new value set from web interface overrides that default value.

The setting file will be like this:

TEST_WEBSETTING = 'default value'
SPAM = 'default spam'

Then you can get setting values from websettings.

>>> from websettings import websettings
>>> websettings.TEST_WEBSETTING
'default value'

After you set overriding value (like ‘after value’) by using web interface…:

>>> websettings.TEST_WEBSETTING
'after value'


This library is registered in PyPI as django-websettings. You can install it as much as you like.


Websettings file

The position of the setting file is specified by a WEBSETTINGS_MODULE in your project’s file:

# In your file.
WEBSETTING_MODULE = 'yourproject.websettings'

Under project directory seems good. You should put these setting key’s by UPPER_CASE.

Web interface URL

The url to web interface to set setting values can be included like this:

# In your file.
url(r'^websettings/', include('websettings.urls'))

The admin user can only access this page.


django-websettings is designed to correspond to multiple backend to store settings.

You can specify the back end module to set a WEBSETTINGS_BACKEND in your project’s file:

# In your file

A DB backend (websetting.backends.db) is used by default.


django-websettings is tested by some environments, check out the Travis CI report.
