Site updates on 1 October 2014

We’ve just updated PythonAnywhere, and there’s some great news: Postgres is now in beta! We’ve switched it on for a select list of beta testers; if you’d like to join, drop us a line at

There have also been some minor tweaks and updates:

  • New installed packages: OpenCV, the libproj Ubuntu package (useful for some Python GIS packages), WeasyPrint,
  • General website speedup (improved minifying of CSS and JavaScript).
  • The “Web” and “Databases” tabs remember which sub-tab you’re on between visits.
  • Better validation on the web tab.
  • The page displayed for web apps that have their DNS set up to route to PythonAnywhere but haven’t been set up has a better explanation of what’s going on.
