Just my 2 cents or ramblings on the topic of GSoC and deployment: Most Django deployments we do are executed by running containers from custom built Docker images from private repositories. They are mostly run with either - Docker Compose on small scale, or - Heroku, Kubernetes or other

I was looking into how ansible is used to automate the deployment procedure for django, and it does indeed seem to cover a lot of ground. It seems unlikely that I can add anything particularly new to the automation process. On Friday, February 15, 2019 at 5:19:24 PM UTC+5:30, Adam Johnson

Yes in my experience Heroku/Divio/Elastic Beanstalk/other PaaS platforms already fit the space of a "simple Django deployment". I am also skeptical, I'd need to see how it fit in the space, what it does differently, and how it will be maintained long term. I think it's a bit outside the remit of

That seems accurate. In your opinion, would it still be infeasible to provide support for one stack to begin with? For example: gunicorn + nginx? And that can ultimately lead to support for other configurations. On Thursday, February 14, 2019 at 11:25:57 PM UTC+5:30, Carlton Gibson wrote: > >

Out of interest, do the projects for GSOC have to fall within the Django repository themselves? Could they be an associated project under the Django umbrella? I think something that helps with deployment in general could be interesting, but it definitely does not live inside Django core.

Hmmm. I think that would be out for scope for Django. More suited to tools such as Ansible (and similar). I don't think adding a one step deployment story would really be feasible within a GSoC project. (As you say, it's very complex.) On Thursday, 14 February 2019 18:46:52 UTC+1, Shashank

Small point: a cross-DB JSONField could also serve as a cross-DB ArrayField, since JSON can store arrays. I don't believe MySQL or SQLite have "array" types, so to build a cross-DB ArrayField you'd emulate them with JSON plus a restriction to just storing arrays, which comes back to building a
