The Essential Django Deployment Guide

Sharing an opinionated guide to Django deployment that I just published. I tried to write the guide that I wish I had when I first started learning about this topic. It covers the big-picture decisions you’ll make when deploying your Django application—from choosing a hosting strategy to the nitty-gritty details of where to store your passwords.

Hope it helps someone!


That’s a nice start! Thank you for sharing.

And yes, I agree that the more expanded architecture to include Celery, static and media files, and possibly even a Postfix installation or Channels-based configuration could make an excellent next step.

You may even want to consider explaining some of the configuration options for nginx or PostgreSQL - not just what you need to set, but what you also may want to be aware of, or consider to change.


This seems like something that would come in very handy at some point for me. Thank you for sharing!
