Simple Bash Script To Setup Development Environment

Don't know why the sh wiki processor ain't workin', maybe the server doesn't have enscript installed, so here's a plain and not that neat view of the script:

#!/bin/bash

# Project Name, for example:
# DJANGO_PROJECT="$(basename `pwd`)"
#DJANGO_PROJECT=''


# Django's HTTP server settings
#SERVER_ADDR="192.168.0.2"
#SERVER_PORT="8080"

# Database Settings
DJANGO_DB_NAME="${DJANGO_PROJECT}"
DJANGO_DB_USER=''
DJANGO_DB_PASS=''

# Project's unique ID setting
DJANGO_SECRET_KEY='YOUR_SECRET_UNIQUE_ID_HERE'

# Update our Python path
if [ "$(echo $PYTHONPATH | grep $(dirname `pwd`))" == "" ]; then
        PYTHONPATH="$(echo $PYTHONPATH):$(dirname `pwd`)"
fi"

# Setup DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE
DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE="${DJANGO_PROJECT}.settings"

# Check argument passed to script, if '-S', it starts Django's HTTP server
if [ "$1" == "-S" ]; then
    # If SERVER_ADDR is not setup, use the default
    if [ -z "${SERVER_ADDR}" ]; then
        SERVER_ADDR="localhost"
    fi
    # If SERVER_PORT is not setup, use the default
    if [ -z "${SERVER_PORT}" ]; then
        SERVER_PORT="8000"
    fi
    # Start the Django's HTTP Server
    django-admin.py runserver ${SERVER_ADDR}:${SERVER_PORT} \
        --settings="${DJANGO_PROJECT}.settings"
fi
#!/bin/bash

# Project Name, for example:
# DJANGO_PROJECT="$(basename `pwd`)"
#DJANGO_PROJECT=''


# Django's HTTP server settings
#SERVER_ADDR="192.168.0.2"
#SERVER_PORT="8080"

# Database Settings
DJANGO_DB_NAME="${DJANGO_PROJECT}"
DJANGO_DB_USER=''
DJANGO_DB_PASS=''

# Project's unique ID setting
DJANGO_SECRET_KEY='YOUR_SECRET_UNIQUE_ID_HERE'

# Update our Python path
if [ "$(echo $PYTHONPATH | grep $(dirname `pwd`))" == "" ]; then
	PYTHONPATH="$(echo $PYTHONPATH):$(dirname `pwd`)"
fi

# Setup DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE
DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE="${DJANGO_PROJECT}.settings"

# Check argument passed to script, if '-S', it starts Django's HTTP server
if [ "$1" == "-S" ]; then
    # If SERVER_ADDR is not setup, use the default
    if [ -z "${SERVER_ADDR}" ]; then
        SERVER_ADDR="localhost"
    fi
    # If SERVER_PORT is not setup, use the default
    if [ -z "${SERVER_PORT}" ]; then
        SERVER_PORT="8000"
    fi
    # Start the Django's HTTP Server
    django-admin.py runserver ${SERVER_ADDR}:${SERVER_PORT} \
        --settings="${DJANGO_PROJECT}.settings"
fi

You also need to make some changes to your ~/.bashrc. Add the following to it:

export DJANGO_PROJECT=''
export DJANGO_DB_NAME=''
export DJANGO_DB_USER=''
export DJANGO_DB_PASS=''
export DJANGO_SECRET_KEY=''
export DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE=''
export DJANGO_PROJECT=''
export DJANGO_DB_NAME=''
export DJANGO_DB_USER=''
export DJANGO_DB_PASS=''
export DJANGO_SECRET_KEY=''
export DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE=''

To use it, just source it to update environment variables:

source django-env.sh 

To run the server:

./django-env.sh -S 

This is of course, a file that you won't send/add to your revision control system, it has private data.

Now, on your project's settings.py, you can use(these are just parts of settings.py of course, the ones that need change from the default):

import os

DATABASE_NAME = os.environ['DJANGO_DB_NAME']
DATABASE_USER = os.environ['DJANGO_DB_USER']
DATABASE_PASSWORD = os.environ['DJANGO_DB_PASS']

SECRET_KEY = os.environ['DJANGO_SECRET_KEY']

And now, you can safely commit settings.py to your revision control system without double checking to see if you forgot to delete the private parts.
