Create the namespace you want:
dotcloud create <namespace>
A DotCloud application is described by a build file, which is a simple YAML file named "dotcloud.yml" located in your local source directory. To add a new python service to your app, just add the following lines to
www: type: python
Now create a
<source_folder>/wsgi.py file containing:
import sys sys.path.append('/home/dotcloud/current') from <your_app_package> import app as application
/home/dotcloud/current is the default path to your app on the server.
uwsgi.conf in the source folder. See Dotcloud documentation for further information.
pip freeze > ./requirements.txt
Now, make sure that your source folder contains at least:
./ ../ ./<your_app_package> ./static ./__init__.py ./ ... ./requirements.txt ./wsgi.py ./dotcloud.yml ./ ...
Create a symbolic link to your
cd <source_folder> ln -s <your_app_package>/static static
You can now push the code to Dotcloud:
dotcloud push <namespace>
A random URL has been generated for your python service in your application (something like http://my4ppr0x.dotcloud.com/). Point your browser to this URL to see your new app running.
