Gunicorn — autoreload app

Do you run your Django app under Gunicorn and you want to reload it once you change the source code in your editor? No problem!

In past I used directive max-requests=1 but the time showed it’s not the best solution especially when you have a page with multiple AJAX requests. The app is reload after each AJAX request. The result is pretty much slow application.

The solution is to use reload=1 or reload=True if you use .py configuration. Gunicorn watches source code and reload itself after each change — and let’s you know in command line.
