oceanlove With regards to to running Django projects, is there anything that was doable in Wf but not supported yet in OpalS?
Nope, I cannot think of anything specific to Django on WebFaction that you can't do on your Opalstack account.
oceanlove Does OpalS support python 2.7 as well?
Our Django and uwsgi installers create a Python 3 virtualenv, but you can replace that with Python 2.7 like so:
pip2.7 install --user -U pip
pip2.7 install --user virtualenv
mv env env.old
virtualenv -p /bin/python2.7 env
pip install uwsgi django
Does OpalS email system have a "Send to a program" for each email account, as supported in Wf's Dashboard?
We do! It's in the final stages of testing and we should be able to release it soon. It's a very different approach compared to how WebFaction did it :-)
Do we have any restrictions on the # of emails sent out per day?
The volume of outgoing mail sent via your Opalstack SMTP and sendmail services is limited as follows:
- 750 messages per "day" (a rolling 24-hour period)
- 10,000 messages per "month" (a rolling 30-day period)
More info is in the user guide at: Outgoing Mail Volume
Is there any restriction on 3rd-party installations?
Not from us! If the thing you want to run can be installed on CentOS7 in your home directory without sudo or root access, and it's not something you're running to disrupt service etc, then you can run it on our platform.
