This is an example of how to set up a Python application to deploy on Kinsta’s Application Hosting services from a GitHub repository.

Kinsta automatically installs dependencies defined in your requirements.txt file.

  1. Log in to GitHub and create a new repository from this template (Use this template > Create a new repository): Kinsta – Python Starter.
  2. In MyKinsta, add an application with the Python Starter repository. The Start command can be left blank for the web process as Kinsta automatically detects the required command from the Procfile in the repository.

The app is available as soon as the build finishes, and the Kinsta Welcome page loads at your application’s URL.

Web Server Setup

When you deploy an application and include a Procfile in the repository, Kinsta automatically creates a web process based on the Procfile in the root of the repository. Use this command in your Procfile to run your web server:

web: python
