my requirements

django==1.9.5 docopt==0.6.2 elasticsearch==2.3.0 hdfs==2.0.5 pip==8.1.1 python==3.5.0 requests==2.9.1 setuptools==20.3 simplejson==3.8.2 six==1.10.0 urllib3==1.14 vs2015_runtime==14.00.23026.0 wheel==0.29.0

the command i ran

cf push pytest -b

how should i deploy this?


i changed python version to 2.7.10 and removed the vs2015-runtime==14.00.23026.0 requirement. Now i get

$ python mysite/ collectstatic --noinput
       Traceback (most recent call last):

 !     Error while running '$ python mysite/ collectstatic --noinput'.
       See traceback above for details.
       You may need to update application code to resolve this error.
       Or, you can disable collectstatic for this application:
          $ heroku config:set DISABLE_COLLECTSTATIC=1
Staging failed: Buildpack compilation step failed

and here is what my project setup looks like

and in my i have

STATIC_ROOT =  os.path.join(BASE_DIR, '/static')
STATIC_URL = '/static/'

what am i doing wrong?


thanks a lot Hobert Bush for your help. i did as you suggested and now i'm almost there. The problem is that now django cant find some of my static files. I have a piece of code like

hdfsProps = ReadProp.load_properties("hdfsStats/props/hdfsprops.prop") 

and here is the layout

so i want to read those two prop files. note that this works perfectly in my local pc. even if i dont create the hdfsStas/props/ structure inside 'static'

how should i change my layout so that my code can pick up these files? i even tried ../../props/hdfsprops.prop but that gives me the same error. Lastly, the code that reads in the files is inside the src package


Please revert to Python runtime 2.7.10, as this is the highest runtime level currently supported using the Bluemix Python Buildpack.
