Thanks to everyone who has supported this package of Zappa utilities for Django! Many of these utilities have become deprecated as new features have been added to AWS, or split into their own projects such a
We're making one final release and will not be accepting further issues or pull requests.
Small utilities for making Zappa deployments slightly easier for Django applications.
This project was inspired by Edgar Roman's Zappa Django Guide.
pip install zappa-django-utils
Add to your installed apps:
INSTALLED_APPS += ['zappa_django_utils']
django-s3-sqlite instead, as it has an updated SQLite driver compatible with current versions of Django:
Once you have your RDS set up, your VPC/Subnet/Security Groups set up, and your
DATABASES setting set up, you can create the database with:
$ zappa manage <stage> create_pg_db
Then you're ready to
python manage.py makemigrations and
zappa update; zappa manage <stage> migrate!
You'll probably need a default user to manage your application with, so you can now:
$ zappa manage <stage> create_admin_user
Or you can pass some arguments:
$ zappa manage <stage> create_admin_user one two three
This will internally make this call:
User.objects.create_superuser('one', 'two', 'three')
Now log in and immediately change the admin user's email and password.
You can create a Postgres schema with:
zappa manage create_pg_schema
and drop it with:
zappa manage drop_pg_schema
