    TY for the tutorial. It feels like a gap for pset7, pset8 and the final project has been plugged! For me it really helps having it broken up into distinctive steps, as it's easy to look at an issue like this and feel discombobulated on where to begin.

    It used to be you could just copy the code throw it on a hosting service like hostgator but that was with PHP and besides is probably a bad idea if you're aiming for your project receiving any level of popularity.

    2 Questions:
    * Could you consider expanding it to Linux in a later version? (probably mainly this would involve changing the Homebrew section)
    * And how would one go about setting up a testing db where entering data on localhost didn't get reflected in the published web app?

    It's really convenient to be able to throw in "lorem ipsum" and things like random Chinese/中文 Characters into your forms to debug your app on localhost–but then it would look really weird if those comments were published to the web!

    Is there a simple way to use virtualenv to setup a testdb (which is structurally a copy of the production one) to be used on the local computer but which can be easily switched off, maybe through a global flag, when the app is uploaded to heroku?

    If youre watching this and trying to follow and don't get it…don't fret! I just learned what he covers in this video and it takes months…virtual environment? environment variables? Hell sqlalchemy took me a month on its own!..its a huge hard library……stay calm!

    Hi, thanks for the video. I'm wondering if I have to use PostgreSQL to utilize Heroku?
    For my testing / prototype app, I'm using Google Sheets API so I'm wondering how can I deploy my app on the web without transferring my db? Thanks in advance.

    A few things demystified. Is there a downloadable PPT of your talk? Still surprised as to why Python apps are too hard to publish unlike WordPress based solutions relying on MySql as an example.

    Whats good is the new version of course starts you off in Github, Atom, SQLAlchemy, Postgres, Heroku. So I just had to fast forward to the gunicorn Procfile stuff :). Well done sir!

    Hi,
    This is a great tutorial.
    One Question: Where do we have to put .env file. Will it be in same project folder?
