Installation

Requirements

Installing Livesettings

After the dependencies have been installed, you can install the latest livesettings, using:

pip install -e hg+http://bitbucket.org/bkroeze/django-livesettings/#egg=django-livesettings

Add livesettings to your installed apps in :file:`settings.py`:

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    ...
    # Uncomment the next line to enable the admin:
    'django.contrib.admin',
    'livesettings',
    'myapp'
    ...
)

It is high recommended to configure a global cache (like MemcachedCache) for multiprocess servers! Otherwise the processes would not be notified about new values with the default LocMemCache. The default configuration is safe for a debug server (manage.py runserver).

Add it to your :file:`urls.py`:

urlpatterns = patterns('',
    ...
    # Uncomment the next line to enable the admin:
    url(r'^admin/', include(admin.site.urls)),
    url(r'^settings/', include('livesettings.urls')),
    ...
)

Execute a syncdb to create the required tables:

python manage.py syncdb
