Create BYCEPS Configuration File#
To run BYCEPS, a configuration file is required. Those usually reside in
There are two examples,
production-example.py, that you can use as a base for your specific
For starters, create a copy of the development example file to adjust as we go along:
$ cp config/development-example.py config/development.py
Set a Secret Key#
A secret key is, among other things, required for login sessions. So let’s generate one in a cryptographically secure way:
(venv)$ byceps generate-secret-key 3ac1c416bfacb82918d56720d1c3104fd96e8b8d4fbee42343ae7512a9ced293
Set this value in your configuration file so the line looks like this:
SECRET_KEY = '3ac1c416bfacb82918d56720d1c3104fd96e8b8d4fbee42343ae7512a9ced293'
Do not use the above key (or any other key you copied from anywhere). Generate your own secret key!
Do not use the same key for development and production environments. Generate separate secret keys!
