What is Django?

Django is an open source web application framework developed based on Python. The Django framework not only provides a complete code directory structure, but also uses the structure model, view, and template. This makes the code easy to standardize during the development process. Among them, Django Admin provides an out-of-the-box back-end management system and is the "Go-To" by many Python developers and startups.

21YunBox provides a very simple Django deployment method in China. You can deploy on the 21YunBox in the Python environment.

How to Deploy Django in China?

  1. Register as a 21YunBox member
  2. Create a PostgreSQL database
  3. Fork django example
  4. Create a Cloud Service on the 21YunBox, and allow the 21YunBox to access your code base
  5. Configure the following settings


Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Build command:

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Start command:

gunicorn hello.wsgi:application
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Click Advanced Configuration to configure environment variables:

DJANGO_DB_URL In the first step to create a cloud database
midpoint Database URL Obtain
DJANGO_ALLOWED_HOSTS <service name>,

For more Django-related configurations, please refer to Official Document.
In this example, DJANGO_DEBUG=True is a demonstration and example only. You can set DJANGO_DEBUG to False in the environment variable when it goes live.

Once the build is complete, use the remote connection of the 21YunBox to create a Django administrator account

./ createsuperuser
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

It's that easy! When the build is completed, your application will be accessible in the subdomain of 21YunBox.
