Drawbacks to running Django under PyPy?

I understand that Django, PyPy, and Psycopg2 all work correctly together, and speed.pypy.org claims great performance improvements over CPython. Are there any downsides?


  1. Library support. Not all libraries are compatible with PyPy.

    Your best bet is to actually try running pypy manage.py test and see if it breaks. Then you know which dependencies need to be brought into line.


  2. Webservers

    You can't use pypy with Apache. You need to use a pure-python webserver + nginx. You MAY get it working on uwsgi.

Relative import in Django

python django import relative

I am currently developing a client/server application. Client and server are both Django projects.

vertically centering one and two line text buttons

html css

I think this is a simple one but I have a row of buttons: one that is just one short word and two that are 3 long words so they run to two lines.
