web2py on PythonAnywhere

It's too bad fluxflex will shut down and will be no longer available on June 30, 2012. It was great service, easy to deploy, I was a little bit frustrated with using git but overall I enjoyed. Especially, I was one of the fun because this company was established by young Japanese guys !

I was looking for new place and introduced PythonAnywhere in the web2py forum.

It's so easy to install. All you have to do is sign up for free account, click web2py icon and Done !
I was running my test app in a few minutes.

Wow! I'm very impressed!!

Maybe I can spend $9 per month to host it under own domain name. The performance should be enough  for the small app !

I'm not familiar with console (I'm windows guy) so I wonder how I can update wen2py when new version is available...


  1. You can upgrade directly from the web2py admin

    1. My version on pythonanywhere is 1.99.7. It's usually a link on web2py admin to update the latest but mine just said "Checking for upgrades..." and it's not available... strange.
