A WSGI front-door dispatcher.
A WSGI front-door dispatcher, virtual host router and environ manipulation swiss-army knife.
WFront is a top-level request dispatcher, directing requests based on the requested “Virtual Host”, listening port, URL path, or any combination.
WFront can be used to:
- host multiple WSGI-powered domains in a single process
- emulate a mod_proxy, SCGI/FastCGI/AJP, mod_wsgi, or mod_python WSGI setup under a simple development mode WSGI server,
- simplify development and testing of complex, multi-server cluster environments
- or just perform simple path-based request dispatching
Mapping HTTP/1.0 requests to HTTP/1.1 Host:-style requests is supported and is very flexible. WFront includes an environ manipulation toolkit that allows for additions to and transformations of server-provided environ data to be performed on each request.
