Deploy a Django project to Heroku with minimal configuration.
This package is specifically designed to work with the Forge Heroku Buildpack.
$ forge heroku Usage: forge heroku [OPTIONS] COMMAND [ARGS]... Commands for deploying and managing Heroku apps Options: --help Show this message and exit. Commands: create Create a new Heroku app with Postgres... pre-deploy Pre-deploy checks for release process serve Run a production server using gunicorn set-buildpacks Automatically determine and set buildpacks shell Open a remote Django shell
When you use the Forge buildpack,
Heroku will automatically set up a
Procfile for you.
Here's what it does:
web: forge heroku serve release: forge heroku pre-deploy
If you need to customize your
Procfile, simply add one to your repo!
In the Heroku "release" phase we run
manage.py check --deploy --fail-level WARNING as part of
forge heroku pre-deploy.
This runs a number of Django system checks (many related to the settings above) and will prevent deploying your app if any checks fail. You can also create your own checks that will run during this process.
forge heroku pre-deploy will also run
manage.py migrate to ensure that your database is up to date.
