djangorecipe 1.5

Django Buildout Recipe
djangorecipe is a buildout recipe that can be used to create a setup for Django. It will automatically download Django and install it in the buildout's sandbox. You can use either a release version of Django or a subversion checkout (by using trunk instead of a version number.

You can see an example of how to use the recipe below:

[buildout]
parts = satchmo django
eggs = ipython

[satchmo]
recipe = gocept.download
url = http://www.satchmoproject.com/snapshots/satchmo-0.6.tar.gz
md5sum = 659a4845c1c731be5cfe29bfcc5d14b1

[django]
recipe = djangorecipe
version = trunk
settings = development
eggs = ${buildout:eggs}
extra-paths =
 ${satchmo:location}
project = dummyshop


Supported options

The recipe supports the following options.

project
 This option sets the name for your project. The recipe will create a basic structure if the project is not already there.

projectegg
 Use this instead of the project option when you want to use an egg as the project. This disables the generation of the project structure.

version
 The version argument can accept a few different types of arguments. You can specify trunk. In this case it will do a checkout of the Django trunk. Another option is to specify a release number like 0.96.2. This will download the release tarball. Finally you can specify a full svn url (including the revision number). An example of this would be http://code.djangoproject.com/svn/django/branches/newforms-admin@7833.

settings
 You can set the name of the settings file which is to be used with this option. This is useful if you want to have a different production setup from your development setup. It defaults to development.

download-cache
 Set this to a folder somewhere on you system to speed up installation. The recipe will use this folder as a cache for a downloaded version of Django.

extra-paths
 All paths specified here will be used to extend the default Python path for the bin/* scripts.

control-script
 The name of the script created in the bin folder. This script is the equivalent of the manage.py Django normally creates. By default it uses the name of the section (the part between the [ ]).

wsgi
 An extra script is generated in the bin folder when this is set to true. This can be used with mod_wsgi to deploy the project. The name of the script is control-script.wsgi.

fcgi
 Like wsgi this creates an extra script within the bin folder. This script can be used with an FCGI deployment.

test
 If you want a script in the bin folder to run all the tests for a specific set of apps this is the option you would use. Set this to the list of app labels which you want to be tested.

testrunner
 This is the name of the testrunner which will be created. It defaults to test.

All following options only have effect when the project specified by the project option has not been created already.

urlconf
 You can set this to a specific url conf. It will use project.urls by default.

secret
 The secret to use for the settings.py, it generates a random string by default.

Another example

The next example shows you how to use some more of the options:

[buildout]
parts = django extras
eggs =
 hashlib

[extras]
recipe = iw.recipe.subversion
urls =
 http://django-command-extensions.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ django-command-extensions
 http://django-mptt.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ django-mptt

[django]
recipe = djangorecipe
version = trunk
settings = development
project = exampleproject
wsgi = true
eggs =
 ${buildout:eggs}
test =
 someapp
 anotherapp


Example configuration for mod_wsgi

If you want to deploy a project using mod_wsgi you could use this example as a starting point:

< Directory /path/to/buildout >
 Order deny,allow
 Allow from all
< /Directory >
< VirtualHost 1.2.3.4:80 >
 ServerName my.rocking.server
 CustomLog /var/log/apache2/my.rocking.server/access.log combined
 ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/my.rocking.server/error.log
 WSGIScriptAlias / /path/to/buildout/bin/django.wsgi
< /VirtualHost >

What's New in This Release:
  • Removed support for a different python version than the one you use to run buildout with. Previously, you could run your buildout with 2.6 but get Django to use 2.7 instead. zc.buildout 2.0 doesn't allow it anymore, so we removed it too.
