  1. Using pyvenv (venv) With Django on WebFaction. :: Solid Ether

    Also for the earlier post it links to. Django-type sites on WebFaction (as opposed to standard Apache sites) do sound a bit messy though.

  2. My essential django package list — /var/

    A handy list including a few handy things I hadn’t heard of. Plus useful descriptions of them all. (via Simon Willison)

  3. Django Service Objects

    I like keeping stuff like this out of views and models, and this seems like a nice way to do it. (via @simonwillison)

  4. Unit test your Django views

    Unit testing Django’s class-based views seems difficult to do simply. This helps.

  5. Simple Django error logging configuration for Heroku | chrxr.com

    For future reference. Just because it seemed harder than necessary to work out how to get Django errors to display in Heroku’s console.

  6. A basic Celery on Heroku guide

    This was also a nice write-up, with lots of handy tips, and barely out of date (a miracle, it seems).

  7. Python developer articles - Django celery setup

    Some bits of this were useful. And start-to-finish, not too wordy, examples like this are nice.

  8. Test A Reusable Django Application For Support Of Multiple Django Releases With Tox And Travisci | Joe Bergantine

    A clear description of how to do something that pretty much worked. Always a pleasure.

  9. Setting up Django with Nginx, Gunicorn, virtualenv, supervisor and PostgreSQL - Michał Karzyński

    Nice, clear description. Part two shows how to run multiple Django apps on the Nginx server.

  10. bee-keeper/aws-ansible-django-deployment - Shell

    Looks like a good example of Ansible for deploying a Django project on AWS and Vagrant.

  11. zalew / django-flickr — Bitbucket

    “Provides a mechanism to mirror user’s Flickr photos into a Django project.”

  12. jcalazan/ansible-django-stack

    An Ansible playbook: Django, Postgres, Vagrant, Ubuntu 14.04, tested with DigitalOcean. Promising.

  13. Easy Django Deployments with Ansible - Technically Voracious

    A very simple, apparently, Ansible playbook for deploying a Django site to something like DigitalOcean.

  14. Deploying Django 1.7 on Ubuntu with DigitalOcean - with PostgreSQL, Nginx, and Gunicorn | adambeagle.com

    This seems reasonably thorough. Maybe I can face it. But part of me is thinking, “I wish I could just FTP some PHP files to a server.”

  15. coddingtonbear/django-location

    Interesting… Django app that stores location data from Foursquare, iCloud and Runmeter.

  16. mbrochh comments on How do YOU deploy to Webfaction?

    Nice description of deploying a Django site to WebFaction, although not that WebFaction-specific.

  17. Django 1.3 vs Rails 3: A not so final showdown - (think)

    A couple of years old, but a pretty good comparison (from a limited field).

  18. Test-Driven Django Tutorial

    Quite verbose tutorial, in a good way. Assumes very little Django knowledge, which is great/tedious depending on your own level.

  19. Django Class-Based-View Inspector — Classy CBV

    I usually have a tab open to look through the class-based-views on Github. This might be better.

  20. Complete Single Server Django Stack Tutorial | Apreche.net

    Really clear and comprehensive guide to setting up a Django site on Ubuntu.

  21. Carljm / django-lockdown / source / — Bitbucket

    I can’t believe password-protecting Django sites is still such a pain, but this is the best solution I’ve found so far. The latest version isn’t on PyPI though; had to pip install the most recent commit specifically.

  22. Testing and Django by Carl Meyer — Marc’s PyCon 2012 Notes 1.0 documentation

    Good, useful, notes on a presentation about testing in Django. (Actually, go up to all of Marc’s PyCon 2012 notes for loads more good stuff.)

  23. Cyberdelia/django-pipeline

    Good-looking thing for compressing and concatenating CSS and JavaScript files with Django. Good documentation, handles LESS, SASS, CoffeeScript etc. Nice.

  24. Disqus/gargoyle - GitHub

    Adding feature switching to Django projects.

  25. Django Deployment Workshop by Jacob Kaplan-Moss

    This looks good. A three hour video tutorial about deploying Django, “including Amazon’s EC2 and S3, Fabric, Varnish, nginx, mod_wsgi, memcached, PostgreSQL, pgpool, pg_standby, and more.” I just need to find three spare hours now.

  26. The Best (and Worst) of Django

    A presentation covering a few things to do or avoid. Bookmarking it mainly for the settings bit at the end, something I should do better, like this.

  27. Jezdez/django_compressor - GitHub

    “Combines and compresses linked and inline Javascript or CSS in a Django templates into cacheable static files by using the compress template tag.” Can work with Sass CSS I believe.

  28. Pelme/django-compress - GitHub

    Looks good: a tool for automatically (or only when asked) compressing and combining CSS and JavaScript files used on a Django project.

  29. Django Authentication using an Email Address

    I’ve read a lot of half-thought-through explanations for how to let users of a Django site log in with email address rather than username. This seems to be the only one that covers all the bases. Still, it shouldn’t be this hard.

  30. Resetting Your South Migrations

    I was thinking of doing this after a lot of solo early development on a Django project.

  31. Django-treebeard

    “A library that implements efficient tree implementations for the Django Web Framework” (as used by Simon on Lanyrd). Possibly faster/better than django-mptt, which I had problems with.

  32. Use Django and jQuery to create a spreadsheet application

    That’s a more interesting guide/demo than “how to make a weblog”. (via Django Weekly)

  33. Dancarroll / django-activitysync / source – Bitbucket

    Django app for aggregating activity from different services, currently Twitter, Google Reader and Reddit.

  34. Virtualenv and pip Basics | Jontourage

    Nothing I didn’t already know, but explained simply and clearly, which will be handy if I have to describe this stuff to anyone else.

  35. From zero to coder hero: Synchronizing django with twitter using django-syncr

    How to fix the out-of-date django-syncr to work with Twitter’s OAuth.

  36. Danfairs/django-syncr at danfairs - GitHub

    What looks like the most active copy of django-syncr around. Dan’s adding stuff to the ‘danfairs’ branch.

  37. Django-syncr - Project Hosting on Google Code

    The “official” django-syncr source, but not updated since December 2008.

  38. Django-syncr: Synchronize Django with the web | JesseLegg.com

    Introduction to django-syncr, which grabs Twitter, Flickr, Delicious, etc stuff from your accounts to your own Django-powered website.

  39. Coderholic’s django-cities at master - GitHub

    Models, with data from GeoNames, for countries, regions, cities and districts, for Django. Haven’t used it yet, but looks very useful.

  40. Django-messages - Project Hosting on Google Code

    App for allowing the sending of private messages between users of a site. Looks good at first glance.

  41. Izi / django-admin-tools / wiki / Home – Bitbucket

    Another way of making Django’s admin nicer.

  42. Dcramer’s django-sentry at master - GitHub

    Looks nice, haven’t used it. “Sentry provides you with a generic interface to view and interact with your [Django] error logs.”
