  • pythonanywhere is free and works with a sqlite db
  • if you want postgres you can use supabase for free
  • pythonanywhere does not allow connecting to supabase unless you pay
  • this was an annoying waste of time just to determine what the errors meant
  • I had to dig into their forums to find a user that explained you have to pay to enable it
  • side note about python anywhere: fastapi requires asgi & they only provide wsgi
  • I've tried a few other ways to host django
  • google cloud run
  • aws
  • linode & openlitespeed
  • python anywhere is the only one I stuck with
