Manage multiple lighttpd and Django or Flask websites on a single machine.

Project Description

# simple-site-manager

This creates configuration files for lighttpd and django fcgi, based on a simple list of sites.
Templates are used for the output files so they can easily be modified and customised for your own sites.

You can either use a global config file or individual files for each project.

The project is in the early stages, barely tested. More to come. Born from the frustration I felt every time I wanted to delpoy a new python driven site...

# Install

Install from pypi:
pip install simple-site-manager

# Configure

## Example site list
# optional arguments
redirect_from_domains: ['']
project_root_dir: /opt/django/site1/,
django_root_dir: /opt/django/site1/site1/,
fcgi_path: /opt/django/site1/site1/,
uploaded_dir: /opt/static/site1_uploaded/,
static_dir: /opt/static/site1/,
www_uploaded_path: /uploaded/,
www_static_path: /m/,
redirect_to_https: false,
virtual_env_dir: /opt/django/site1/env-site1/,
settings_module: site1.settings
max_procs: 3

### Defaults
The paths in the example above are the defaults if nothing is specified in the config file.
In a future versions you will be able to set your defaults yourself.

Here are some defaults:
root of your project: /opt/django/sitename/
fcgi file path (where is located): /opt/django/sitename/sitename/
static files: /opt/static/sitename/
static uploaded files: /opt/static/sitename_uploaded/
settings file: /opt/django/sitename/sitename/sitename/
settings module: sitename.settings
virtualenv path: /opt/django/sitename/env-sitename/

# Usage
siteman config_file.yaml
You will need to run it as root to write lighttpd configuration, feel free to use `--print` to preview the output files.

For additional usage options, just run `siteman -h`


- More fine tuning of site performance settings.
- Store site fcgi config in /etc/siteman instead of each project's directory
- Store lighttpd conf files in /etc/siteman as well?
