Deploying Python and Django Apps on Heroku

Updated: Jun 23, 2019

Problem Statement:

I have a simple Django app hosted in Heroku which simply scrapes data from a website. What I need is that I want a Heroku command (e.g. heroku run python manage.py [custom_command] ) be mapped to a certain URL (e.g. mysite.com/run/[custom_command] ) such that when that certain URL is visited, a dyno is created that will run the command  "heroku run python manage.py [custom_command]".

I think this can be easily done by editing the urls.py and views.py and utilizing the Heroku platform API, but I don't know how.



Deploying Python and Django Apps on Heroku

Challenge:

why does deploying your app on the web have to be SO difficult? Years into my experience as a software developer and to this day I find hosting online to be a PAIN.

If you ever tried it, did you enjoy running into issues with static files, WhiteNoise, not installing the middleware in the right location, or a whole host of said fun stuff? Yeah, me neither.


Heroku:

Heroku is a cloud application platform that provides hosting services for multiple programming languages, including Python. It is basically a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) cloud infrastructure. You can read more about Heroku here. Of course, you need an account, so sign up here.
