The RDMO application uses the Django settings module for it’s configuration. To seperate the base configuration and your local adjustments and secret information (e.g. database connections), RDMO splits the settings into two files:
config/settings/base.py, which is part of the git repository.
config/settings/local.py, which is ignored by git.
As part of the installation
config/settings/local.py should be created from the template
While technically the local settings file
config/settings/local.py can be used to override all of the settings in
config/settings/sample.local.py, it should be used to customize the settings already available in
- General settings
- Export Formats
- Project settings
