Satchmo 0.9-trunk Now Available

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2009

satchmo-frontDevelopment Version

We are proud to announce that we now support and can install the latest trunk-version (0.9) of Satchmo, installed from Mercurial (aka “hg” - get it?!).

Since it’s installed directly from the VCS, and symlinked into the python path, this allows for updates to the source tree anytime – in other words, instant upgrades (and downgrade, if a problem is encountered!) anytime (depending on your VCS).

Django, and other plugins, are installed this same way, as always – we have done it this way since 2007.

Here is a quick intro on how it’s done – just indicate you want us to install Satchmo in the “notes” field when you place your order, and we’ll get it done for you.

Django mod_wsgi now available!

Friday, August 21st, 2009

django-logo-negative-200

Apache Redux

In keeping with the new, recommended Django deployment method of mod_wsgi with Apache , we have migrated our internal processes as well as deployed multiple  new systems this way – and from this point forward, this is how Django (current, 1.1+) will be deployed by default.

We also still fully support the mod_python deployment method, and will be happy to work with you to set up your custom environment, whatever it may be.

Please note that nginx, Lighttpd, and of course Apache with mod_python are also all still available on request.

Just put your request in the “Notes” field when you place your order and we’ll get it done for you.

Pinax Instance Now Available

Tuesday, March 31st, 2009

pinax_logoLibre hosters,

We are proud to announce that the Django-based social-network-enabling Pinax project, is now one of our standard instances, and can be hosted here at Libre hosting, with the usual full root access.

Pinax version (as of this writing), is v0.7.0dev, and is installed with svn to be updatable with svn up, as always (and as our Django instances are, by default). Other versions available on request.

All plugins are preinstalled, and enabled, along with the usual list of example Pinax projects:

drwxr-xr-x  7 root root 4096 2009-03-29 05:18 basic_project
drwxr-xr-x 10 root root 4096 2009-03-30 15:38 complete_project
drwxr-xr-x  7 root root 4096 2009-03-29 05:18 intranet_project
drwxr-xr-x  7 root root 4096 2009-03-29 05:18 private_beta_project
drwxr-xr-x  7 root root 4096 2009-03-29 05:18 temp_content_project
drwxr-xr-x  7 root root 4096 2009-03-29 05:18 temp_group_project
drwxr-xr-x  8 root root 4096 2009-03-29 05:18 temp_schedule_project

Apache with mod_python is the default webserver installed, but we will be happy to install Lighttpd on request (or nginx by prearrangement – contact us for details) with mod_wsgi instead.

Our default Pinax installation includes Django svn trunk (~1.1 as of this writing) with all plugins preinstalled by the Pinax installation scripts. We do not install into a Python virtualenv, because this is intended to be a dedicated Pinax / Django installation.  We can make changes accordingly as desired, upon your request.

Pinax really turbocharges the Django framework, and includes (at least) these pluggables:

Here are a few example Pinax sites to show a portion of what it can do:

Django 1.1, 1.02, 0.96.3 versions now available

Wednesday, January 7th, 2009

We are pleased to announce that we now have three Django versions available for hosting in any of our plans –

Notes:

  1. Although 1.1 is not yet officially released, trunk is always pretty stable – as projects go, the Django team can be relied upon to keep the trunk tree extremely reliable – we run trunk in production, for example.  For new projects, we recommend this option.
  2. Legacy 0.96.3 is the last release before the 1.0 release which broke backward compatibility – it includes the older admin interface (with nested Admin classes), and the older Signals implementation – which provide a migration hurdle for many production environments – we have several customers and friends still running 0.96.3 until they address these migration issues.  We can also help with this, if you need us.
  3. The official released version, 1.02, is stable, and well-tested.  We recommend this option for those conservative production environments that have full-blown separated test/staging and developent envoironments as well.

As always, if you need a specific legacy version (or a specific trunk svn release for that matter, or release-by-date) we will be happy to install it from svn on request, just plce your request in the “notes” field when you place your order.

We will also happily install any Django packages you desire, as well, on request – try the lists at Django Pluggables and Django Search. Google Code also has a good number of Django-related projects hosted there.

And remember, if you need design, development, or site setup assistance, we are always here to help.
