What’s New

Simplified configuration from envrionment

Previous releases required users to manage a local_settings.py file in the home directory of the user running Kegbot. This made Kegbot hard to run in an environment without a persistent disk (e.g. Heroku).

Now all configuration variables can be given as envrionment variables. Optionally, a greatly simplified configuration file formal is supported, replacing local_settings.py.

Native Docker support

Kegbot now has an official Dockerfile and corresponding images on Docker Hub.
