    Operation Scenarios

    Tencent Cloud Django component uses Tencent Serverless Framework. Based on serverless services (such as COS) in the cloud, it can implement "zero" configuration, convenient development, and rapid deployment of your Django webpage applications.

    Django features:

    • "Zero" configuration: you only need to write project code and then deploy it, and the Serverless Framework will take care of all the configuration work.
    • Pay-as-you-go billing: fees are charged based on the request usage, and you don't need to pay anything if there is no request.
    • Fast deployment: you can deploy your entire webpage application in just a few seconds.
    • Convenient collaboration: the development mode and in-cloud debugging are supported to facilitate team collaboration.
    • Rich extensions: RESTful API services can be deployed.


    1. Install

    Install the latest version of Serverless Framework through npm:

    $ npm install -g serverless

    2. Create

    Create a directory and enter it:

    $ mkdir myDjangoDemo && cd myDjangoDemo

    Use the following command and template link to quickly create a static website hosting application:

    $ serverless create --template-url
    $ cd example

    3. Configure

    Create the serverless.yml file locally:

    $ touch serverless.yml

    Configure serverless.yml as follows:

    component: django # (required) name of the component. In that case, it's express.
    name: mydjangoDemo # (required) name of your express component instance.
    org: mydjangoDemo # (optional) serverless dashboard org. default is the first org you created during signup.
    app: mydjangoDemo # (optional) serverless dashboard app. default is the same as the name property.
    stage: dev # (optional) serverless dashboard stage. default is dev.
      region: ap-guangzhou
      functionName: DjangoFunction 
      djangoProjectName: mydjangocomponent # Name of your project folder
        bucket: enter the name of the bucket into which you upload your project
        src: ./src
        timeout: 10
        memorySize: 256
            TEST: vale
          subnetId: ''
          vpcId: ''
          - https
        environment: release

    If you want to create a project by yourself, please install the dependencies required by Python in the project directory. For example, Django is needed in this example, and you can run pip to install it:

    pip install Django -t ./

    4. Deploy

    If you have not logged in to or signed up for a Tencent Cloud account:

    Deploy by running the sls command, and you can add the --debug parameter to view the information during the deployment process:

    $ sls --debug

    5. Remove

    You can run the following commands to remove the deployed service:

    $ sls remove --debug

    Account configuration (optional)

    Currently, you can scan a QR code to log in to the CLI by default. If you want to configure persistent environment variables/key information, you can also create a local .env file:

    $ touch .env # Tencent Cloud configuration information

    Configure Tencent Cloud's SecretId and SecretKey information in the .env file and save it:

    # .env
    • If you don't have a Tencent Cloud account yet, please sign up first.
    • If you already have a Tencent Cloud account, you can get SecretId and SecretKey in API Key Management.
