Django Marketplace App

Django is a web development framework for the Python programing language. It enables rapid development, while favoring pragmatic and clean design. Django was initially developed for use in a newspaper’s website division, and as a result the Django framework is very well suited to developing content-centric applications. It’s also very flexible in its ability to facilitate many complex content management operations.

Deploy Django Marketplace App

Linode’s App Marketplace allows you to easily deploy software on a Linode using the Linode Cloud Manager. To access Linode’s App Marketplace:

  1. Log in to your Linode Cloud Manager account.

  2. From the Linode dashboard, click on the Marketplace button in the left-hand navigation menu.

  3. The Linode creation page appears, with the Marketplace tab pre-selected.

  4. Under the Select App section, select the app you would like to deploy:

    Select a Marketplace App to deploy

  5. Once you have selected the app, proceed to the app’s Options section and provide values for the required fields.

The Django Options section of this guide provides details on all available configuration options for this app.

Django Options

You can configure your Django App by providing values for the following fields:

FieldDescription
Django USERUsername for your Django application. Required.
Django PasswordPassword for the Django USER. Required.
Django USER emailEmail address for the Django USER. The format for the email must be in the form [email protected]. Required.

Linode Options

After providing the app specific options, provide configurations for your Linode server:

ConfigurationDescription
Select an ImageDebian 10 is currently the only image supported by Django Marketplace Apps, and it is pre-selected on the Linode creation page. Required.
RegionThe region where you would like your Linode to reside. In general, it’s best to choose a location that’s closest to you. For more information on choosing a DC, review the How to Choose a Data Center guide. You can also generate MTR reports for a deeper look at the network routes between you and each of our data centers. Required.
Linode PlanYour Linode’s hardware resources. Django can be supported on any size Linode, but we suggest you choose a Linode plan that reflects how many resources you plan on using. For small applications, a 1GB Linode (Nanode) is sufficient. If you decide that you need more or fewer hardware resources after you deploy your app, you can always resize your Linode to a different plan. Required.
Linode LabelThe name for your Linode, which must be unique between all of the Linodes on your account. This name will be how you identify your server in the Cloud Manager’s Dashboard. Required.
Root PasswordThe primary administrative password for your Linode instance. This password must be provided when you log in to your Linode via SSH. The password must meet the complexity strength validation requirements for a strong password. Your root password can be used to perform any action on your server, so make it long, complex, and unique. Required.

When you’ve provided all required Linode Options, click on the Create button. Your Django app will complete installation anywhere between 2-5 minutes after your Linode has finished provisioning.

Getting Started after Deployment

Access Django

Note
The Django Marketplace App will assign DjangoApp as the Django project name.

After Django has finished installing, you will be able to access your Django site at your Linode’s IPv4 address, for instance: http://yourlinodeip:8000.

  1. To find your Linode’s IPv4 address. Click on the Linodes link in the sidebar. You will see a list of all your Linodes.

  2. Find the Linode you just created when deploying your app and select it.

  3. Navigate to the Networking tab.

  4. The IP address will be displayed under the Address column in the IPv4 table.

  5. Copy and paste the IPv4 address into a browser window followed by :8000. You should see the Django test page appear.

  6. Once you have verified that you can access your Django site via the browser, you can log in using the admin credentials you created when deploying your app. Update the address in the browser to: http://yourlinodeip:8000/admin.

    Login to your Django site.

  7. Once logged in, you will have access to the Admin console. Now you can begin configuring your site.

Note
Currently, Linode does not manage software and systems updates for Marketplace Apps. It is up to the user to perform routine maintenance on software deployed in this fashion.
