Python: Getting Started

A barebones Django app, which can easily be deployed to Heroku.

This application supports the Getting Started with Python on Heroku article - check it out.

Running Locally

Make sure you have Python 3.9 installed locally. To push to Heroku, you'll need to install the Heroku CLI, as well as Postgres.

$ git clone
$ cd python-getting-started

$ python3 -m venv getting-started
$ pip install -r requirements.txt

$ createdb python_getting_started

$ python migrate
$ python collectstatic

$ heroku local

Your app should now be running on localhost:5000.

Deploying to Heroku

$ heroku create
$ git push heroku main

$ heroku run python migrate
$ heroku open
