What is the recommended way of handling settings for local development and the production server? Some of them (like constants, etc) can be changed/accessed in both, but some of them (like paths to static files) need to remain different, and hence should not be overwritten every time the new code is deployed.
Currently, I am adding all constants to
settings.py. But every time I change some constant locally, I have to copy it to the production server and edit the file for production specific changes... :(
Edit: looks like there is no standard answer to this question, I've accepted the most popular method.
