Full Description


Dockerfile and configuration files for Django with Python 3, uWSGI, and Nginx.

About this Image/Dockerfile

This Image/Dockerfile aims to create a container for Django with Python 3 and using uWSGI, Nginx to hosting.

The most part is referenced from dockerfiles/django-uwsgi-nginx.

I change the version of Python and modify the setting of Nginx to make it easier when you use static file of Django.

How to use?

You can build this Dockerfile yourself:

sudo docker build -t "chenjr0719/django-python3-nginx" .

Or, just pull my image:

sudo docker pull chenjr0719/django-python3-nginx

Then, run this image:

sudo docker run -itd -p 80:80 chenjr0719/django-python3-nginx

Now, you can see the initial project of Django at

You can also change it to a different port.

For example, use 8080:

sudo docker run -itd -p 8080:80 chenjr0719/django-python3-nginx

Use your Django project?

If you want to use your Django project which you already developed, use following command:

sudo docker run -itd -p 80:80 -v $PROJECET_DIR:/home/django/website chenjr0719/django-python3-nginx

In order to make it work properly, make sure you project name is website.

If not, you need modify the setting of uwsgi.ini in your container:

sudo docker exec $CONTAINER_ID sed -i "s|module=website.wsgi:application|module=$PROJECT_NAME.wsgi:application|g" /home/django/uwsgi.ini
sudo docker restart $CONTAINER_ID

About Django static files

If you want to use Django static files, you have to:

  1. Enter to your container:

    sudo docker exec -it $CONTAINER_ID bash
  2. Modify the setting of Django.

    SETTING_PATH=`find /home/django/website -name`

    In the Static files section, if your static files are in templates/static, add following setting:

    os.path.join(BASE_DIR, "templates/static"),
    STATIC_ROOT = os.path.join(BASE_DIR, "static")
  3. Run the following command to collect all static files of your project into a folder.

    In default it will use /static/, you can change it by modifying STATIC_ROOT in

    echo yes | python3 /home/django/website/ collectstatic
  4. If you want to use different name of static folder, you need to modify the setting of nginx-site.conf in your container.

    You can use this command:

    sed -i "s|/home/django/website/static|/home/django/website/$STATIC_FOLDER_NAME|g" /etc/nginx/sites-available/default
  5. Exit your container and restart it:

    sudo docker restart $CONTAINER_ID
Docker Pull Command
