Django 3.0+ project template

This is a simple Django 3.0+ project template with my preferred setup. Most Django project templates make way too many assumptions or are just way too complicated. I try to make the least amount of assumptions possible while still trying provide a useful setup. Most of my projects are deployed to Heroku, so this is optimized for that but is not necessary.

Features

  • Django 3.0+
  • Uses Pipenv - the officially recommended Python packaging tool from Python.org.
  • Development, Staging and Production settings with django-configurations.
  • Get value insight and debug information while on Development with django-debug-toolbar.
  • Collection of custom extensions with django-extensions.
  • HTTPS and other security related settings on Staging and Production.
  • Procfile for running gunicorn with New Relic's Python agent.
  • PostgreSQL database support with psycopg2.

How to install

$ django-admin.py startproject \
  --template=https://github.com/jpadilla/django-project-template/archive/master.zip \
  --name=Procfile \
  --extension=py,md,env \
  project_name
$ mv example.env .env
$ pipenv install --dev

Environment variables

These are common between environments. The ENVIRONMENT variable loads the correct settings, possible values are: DEVELOPMENT, STAGING, PRODUCTION.

ENVIRONMENT='DEVELOPMENT'
DJANGO_SECRET_KEY='dont-tell-eve'
DJANGO_DEBUG='yes'

These settings(and their default values) are only used on staging and production environments.

DJANGO_SESSION_COOKIE_SECURE='yes'
DJANGO_SECURE_BROWSER_XSS_FILTER='yes'
DJANGO_SECURE_CONTENT_TYPE_NOSNIFF='yes'
DJANGO_SECURE_HSTS_INCLUDE_SUBDOMAINS='yes'
DJANGO_SECURE_HSTS_SECONDS=31536000
DJANGO_SECURE_REDIRECT_EXEMPT=''
DJANGO_SECURE_SSL_HOST=''
DJANGO_SECURE_SSL_REDIRECT='yes'
DJANGO_SECURE_PROXY_SSL_HEADER='HTTP_X_FORWARDED_PROTO,https'

Deployment

It is possible to deploy to Heroku or to your own server.

Heroku

$ heroku create
$ heroku addons:add heroku-postgresql:hobby-dev
$ heroku pg:promote DATABASE_URL
$ heroku config:set ENVIRONMENT=PRODUCTION
$ heroku config:set DJANGO_SECRET_KEY=`./manage.py generate_secret_key`
