Provides a Django management command to check whether the primary database is ready to accept connections.
Run this command in a Kubernetes or OpenShift Init Container to make your Django application wait until the database is available (e.g. to run database migrations).
The easiest way to install django-probes is with pip
pip install django-probes
1) Add django-probes to your Django application:
INSTALLED_APPS = [ ... 'django_probes', ]
2) Add an Init Container to your Kubernetes/OpenShift deployment configuration, which calls the wait_for_database management command:
- kind: Deployment apiVersion: apps/v1 spec: template: spec: initContainers: - name: wait-for-database image: my-django-app:latest envFrom: - secretRef: name: django command: ['python', 'manage.py', 'wait_for_database']
