gondor.io, a Django application hosting service, has started accepting more people to their private beta. It’s billed as “effortless production Django hosting”, and while it’s not effortless just yet, I’m excited to have spent some time investigating what’s on offer.

It took me about three quarters of an hour to set up an Hello World project from scratch, get it deployed, and served from a domain I specified. The only glaring omission from a “getting started” point of view, is access to the log files, but that’s going to be resolved in the next release (possibly next week).

To learn some more about what’s on offer, check out the documentation. Be sure to check out #gondor too, they’re a friendly bunch in there.
