djangae vs Nezumi for Heroku: What are the differences?
djangae: The best way to run Django on Google App Engine. Djangae (djan-gee) is a Django app that allows you to run Django applications on Google App Engine, including (if you want to) using Django's models with the App Engine Datastore as the underlying database; Nezumi for Heroku: The iOS and Android App for Heroku. The only Heroku App with console access and two-factor auth. Manage your Heroku apps on the go.
djangae and Nezumi for Heroku can be primarily classified as "Platform as a Service" tools.
Some of the features offered by djangae are:
- A WSGI middleware that provides a clean way via which your Django app is plugged into App Engine.
- A hook to allow App Engine's deferred tasks and mapreduce handlers to run through the same environment.
- The ability to use use the Datastore as the database for Django's models. See The Database Backend for details. You can also use App Engine's NDB, or you can use Google Cloud SQL (via the standard django MySQL backend) instead of or along side the Datastore. Or use all 3!
On the other hand, Nezumi for Heroku provides the following key features:
- Two-factor Authentication - Nezumi is the only app that fully supports the new Heroku Two-factor authentication. Sign in securely, even from your mobile device.
- Multiple Accounts - Most users have to manage multiple Heroku accounts, so Nezumi was built around multiple account support. Add and manage as many accounts as you need.
- Scale Immediately - Whether your site just hit Hacker News or your background job queue has filled up, Nezumi lets you scale your processes right from your mobile device.
