I will deploy your Django website for free

Just DM me. We ll schedule a zoom meeting where you’ll show me your website, and how you run it.

- I’ll advise on production best practices.
- I’ll setup continuous deployment from GitHub/Gitlab: all you’ll need to do is ‘git push’
- I’ll get you website online and connect it to your domain name.

Why am I doing this?

I’d like to write a blog post about Django deployment and I want to make sure I cover all the pain points. I’ve been launching Django sites for so long I’m no longer lucid on beginners gotchas.

If you have any questions let me know.

  1. I’ll have to take your up on your offer once I finish my personal portfolio project.

    I have a website deployed though heroku right now but it took lots of trial and error to get it up and running.

  2. What’s your strategy?

    I’ve done terraform + gitlab + VPC. I’ve done serverless via [serverless-framework](https://www.serverless.com/) \+ github actions. Also curious if you throw docker in the mix or keep things light with a venv. Do you always do a task que? Or a redis cache? Logging?

    My biggest search is for the best minimal implementation that won’t take too much.

  3. I’ll be anxious to read the blog post. This step has always been a bit of a black hole for me.

    I almost got fabric figured out then Python3 took off and they only supported 2…haven’t checked in a couple of years.

  4. I would be interested in reading your blog post, or if you make a video by any chance I’d also be interested to see that, any way I can get notified about when you’re releasing the post?

  5. We made a generous free plan at https://appliku.com/products/deploy deploys to your aws/digital ocean account. Custom domains included.

    Aspiring to provide heroku type of convenience.

    Under the hood it deploys in docker, nginx and issues let’s encrypt certificate for each custom domain.

    Databases are also there. As much as you need.

    Tldr it is a solution for those who either tired overpaying for heroku or just starting out and doesn’t want to dive into deployment magic.

    Will be happy to hear feedback or success stories 🙂

    DM if need any help.

  6. What is your strategy for javascript frameworks? I use vue and am curious on what are the differences with deploying with vue installed through cdn as opposed through webpack or vue cli or some other way. Thanks whoever answers this.

  7. Will it be docker based?

    I spend some time on improving initial django deployment to bare VPS. I finished with [200 lines ansible script](https://www.npmjs.com/package/create-django), that sets HTTPS with Caddyserver, gunicorn, made all static/media dirs and pushes code with rsync and sets dependencies with poetry. Currently I see no way to make the script smaller.

    Now I’m looking for a way to make such simple docker deployment.
