Hi, I'm new to Django. I would start to learn it. I would start to use in a shared environment (like sandbox, or some Saap...) I've started tryng to install it in - openshift - heroku

but without achievement. I already seen the doc on the djago web site, but without an environment to try it, it is not god :-(

Can someone give me some tips?

Thank you

Renato

I ran into many problems with Heroku while learning Django as well and found it much easier to host myself on a Ubuntu server using Nginx and Gunicorn on Digital Ocean - https://www.digitalocean.com/. They have some nice tutorials for getting started.

This is a fantastic article on getting a Django page up and running. http://michal.karzynski.pl/blog/2013/06/09/django-nginx-gunicorn-virtualenv-supervisor/

If you like doing local development, I've enhanced a Vagrant script found online and put it up on GitHub if anyone has any improvements. You need Vagrant and Oracle's free VirtualBox, then it is a fairly straight forward install. This will give you an Ubuntu local VM with port forwarding so you can develop entirely locally. I've included Python, Django, Flask, and MySQL in the installation. If you're interested, more detailed instructions can be found here:

No free plan but it is $5 per month. Really cheap hosting.

Hi Renato,

I use the local VM for development. I deploy to Dreamhost, which is fairly cheap; I wouldn't use it for work, but for my personal stuff, it is fine. They have a custom written set up which makes it very easy; more info is here:

http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Django

They start at $8.95 a month and their email support is pretty good - normal response time is a few hours.

Regards,

-Tim

Hi Renato,

You can check koding.com too. You can have your django up and running in seconds then focus on your code.
