Djangofriendly celebrated its first birthday in March. In its first year, more than 16,000 visitors came by to find and share knowledge on hosting Django applications with various hosts.
Voters and commenters have made it quite clear that WebFaction is the preferred shared Django host, and Slicehost is the preferred VPS provider, while Django shouldn’t touch Dreamhost unless it’s with a very sharp, angry stick.
To celebrate Djangofriendly’s birthday, I’ve gone into a bit of a code sprint, the first phase of which concluded this morning as the new code went live.
The first step was to upgrade the existing site to Django 1.1. After that, I began implementing functionality that has been requested of me by various users.
The Djangofriendly Hosts that launched this morning has the following enhancements:
Let me know in the comments if something is broken or not working as expected.
I hope the Django community finds these additions helpful, and I’ll be continuing my sprint for a second Djangofriendly update in the very near future, hoping to help the community find more than just Django hosts…
