Release 0.8.0 (19-Dec-2010)

** Changes from 0.7**

  • A script is now the preferred way to run django commands. Woven no longer needs to be in the INSTALLED_APPS setting, and woven no longer installs fabric or python-paramiko on the node.
  • Removed the DJANGO_REQUIREMENT setting. Django now gets added to the requirement file instead.

New Features

  • The script replaces the need to use the or project script. It can automatically pick up the settings from the file or be overriden with the usual –settings option. It injects itself into the INSTALLED_APPS for the execution of woven django commands so that woven will ‘appear’ to be installed.
  • A custom startproject command creates a much more complete project layout with distribution parent folder, and some sensible default settings to get started quickly. It also has the option of using your own template directory to source a starting layout.

Release 0.7.0 (8-Dec-2010)

Changes from 0.6

  • Multi-site functionality has changed dramatically. Instead of using one wsgi file and settings file per domain, woven now uses dynamic SITE_IDs in a single settings file based on the OS user, and process groups in modwsgi. Subdomains with the same SITE_ID can also be catered for by prefixing the settings filename. For example, if the SITE_ID=1 matches, a settings file for the subdomain on the same SITE_ID would be
  • The ubuntu module has become linux. Woven may be compatible with other debian based distributions, and it would be nice to add support for redhat if someone wants to. I don’t imagine there is too much difference beyond apt/yum (and ufw) between lsb distros for the purposes of using woven.
  • run_once_per_host_version has changed name to run_once_per_version and another decorator has been added run_once_per_node. Both have moved to new decorators module.

New Features

  • Implemented hooks. Can define a with post_setupnode, post_install_package, or post_deploy functions. The can be at project level or app level.
  • Added a DISABLE_APACHE_MODULES setting to disable a number of unneeded modules on setup.
  • Can add Personal Package Archives (PPA’s) to a LINUX_PACKAGE_REPOSITORIES setting
  • Basic support and template for gunicorn added, and auto adds a PPA for gunicorn
  • Backups of configuration files don’t pollute the package directories anymore.
  • Auto-uninstalls packages that are no longer listed in settings
  • Auto-uninstalls or doesn’t install Apache modwsgi if you use gunicorn.
  • Only uploads templates if they have changed or if any packages are installed
  • only installs postgres/mysql db adaptors if your project uses them.
