Django, uWSGI and Nginx in a container
This Dockerfile allows you to build a Docker container with a fairly standard
and speedy setup for Django with uWSGI and Nginx.
uWSGI from a number of benchmarks has shown to be the fastest server
for python applications and allows lots of flexibility.
Nginx has become the standard for serving up web applications and has the
additional benefit that it can talk to uWSGI using the uWSGI protocol, further
Most of this setup comes from the excellent tutorial on
This repo is a fork of https://github.com/dockerfiles/django-uwsgi-nginx,
I made some fixes to have the image working out-of-the-box.
Feel free to clone this and modify it to your liking. And feel free to
Build and run
- docker build -t webapp .
- docker run -d -p 80:80 webapp
You should see the HTML source of Django welcome page.
How to insert your application
In /app currently a django project is created with startproject. You will
probably want to replace the content of /app with the root of your django
uWSGI chdirs to /app so in uwsgi.ini you will need to make sure the python path
to the wsgi.py file is relative to that.
