Setup a Django Server (Python)

WayScript allows you to configure your Lair to host a running microservice in minutes. Follow this guide to setup a simple Django app in your Lair.

Add packages to requirements.txt

Create a requirements.txt file in your Lair’s root directory and specify the django package. You can install the django package via pip in your Lair Terminal. You can also specify any additional dependencies your app requires. See Hosted environments for more details.
pip install django
pip freeze > requirements.txt

Start Django Project

Enter into the Terminal:
django-admin startproject mysite
This creates your Django project
mysite can be changed to whatever you want as a project name

Configure deploy trigger

Open your Lair’s .triggers file and add a new deploy trigger. Create a name for your trigger and input the following run command and port number 8080 (or modified command and port number based on your app requirements). See Triggers for more details.
python mysite/ runserver

Setting Django Hosts

Once your project is created, Django will require the domain that hosts your application to be added to the file in your application directory. You can grab the domain from your Deploy Trigger or from the Endpoints tab.

Test app in development environment

Press “Run” to execute the run command and start your web server process (see Processes for more details). Navigate to the * endpoint generated to see your Flask app in action!

Deploy to production environment

Once you have finished testing, press “Deploy” to create a production environment for your Flask app. Select <Lair_name>.prod in the Lair selector menu and view the on deploy trigger to access your app’s production endpoint. See Hosted environments for more details.
By default, your Lair's endpoints are protected against unauthenticated requests. See Endpoints on how to public expose your endpoints or authenticate using your application key.
