Deploying Django site

Nope, I’m not done yet, but I’m keen to have at least half my site live so that I can stop looking shame-faced and shifty-eyed when people ask about my website. Especially if just a moment before I was running an elevator pitch.

Following that with “uh, my website is under construction” is the equivalent to Billy and Donald’s great efforts at the wave here:



So with all the security scare about Heartbleed bugs and keeping secret keys, while, secret, I still have no clue what to do different when deploying as vs. to developing. You mean I don’t just upload the whole lump onto a live server and point my domain name at it?

Tommy Jarnac has a brilliant post on the best practices for moving a Django project into production mode.

Meanwhile, I’m taking so long on my website I wonder if I should just turn it into a ‘reality’ tv show and let visitors see my bits and pieces of experimentation LIVE.
