Automatic Migrations for Django on App Platform

Hi, I recently setup a new app using Django on DigitalOcean app platform. When developing locally, I run python makemigrations and these are included in git. When I push to git and DigitalOcean redeploys my app, I still have to go into the console and run python migrate. Is this something I can automate, and if so, how?

Short answer, for the record:

  • Go the settings tab of your app
  • Select the web service component
  • In the run command, add ./ migrate

There is no reason to have the readers of this thread open two other pages and watch a YouTube video for such a simple answer.
