Environment

This project setups latest Spirit with Python 3.6 and PostgreSQL on heroku.

Deploy the app

Deploy

To deploy the app, click the above deploy button.

SMTP Provider

Although Spirit requires a SMTP provider in order to send emails (ie: user activation, password reset, etc), it's possible to try this out without one.

Heroku has many addons but you can also use Gmail's SMTP (it has a daily limit, though) or something like postmark.

Limitations

It's not possible to make persistent changes to the filesystem of a (Dyno) Heroku instance. This means it's not possible to upload files or build the (Whoosh) search index.

There are ways to overcome this: images can be uploaded to AWS S3 (there are many Django apps out there for this) and instead of Whoosh use elastic-search.

Or don't use Heroku ;)

Deploying changes

First clone this repo and associate it to the heroku repo:

Then make the desire changes to the files and deploy it:

$ git add .
$ git commit -am "my changes"
$ git push heroku master

Troubleshooting
