I figured out how to run Datasette on https://replit.com/
The trick is to start a new Python project and then drop the following into the
import uvicorn from datasette.app import Datasette ds = Datasette(memory=True, files=) if __name__ == "__main__": uvicorn.run(ds.app(), host="0.0.0.0", port=8000)
Replit is smart enough to automatically create a
pyproject.toml file with
uvicorn as dependencies. It will also notice that the application is running on port 8000 and set
https://name-of-prject.your-username.repl.co to proxy to that port. Plus it will restart the server any time it recieves new traffic (and pause it in between groups of requests).
To serve a database file, download it using
wget in the Replit console and add it to the
files= argument. I ran this:
Then changed that first line to:
ds = Datasette(files=["content.db"])
And restarted the server.
