A high-speed, production ready, thread pooled, generic WSGI server with SSL support

Project Description

WSGIserver is a high-speed, production ready, thread pooled, generic WSGI server with SSL support.

WSGIserver suppport both Python 2 (2.6 and above) and Python 3 (3.1 and above) and has no dependency.

WSGIserver is developed by Florent Gallaire


Download and Install

To install the last stable version from PyPI:

$ sudo pip install wsgiserver

To install the development version from GitHub:

$ git clone
$ cd wsgiserver
$ sudo python install

Or you can just use the file alone, nothing more needed!


Simplest example on how to use WSGIserver:

import wsgiserver

def my_app(environ, start_response):
    status = '200 OK'
    response_headers = [('Content-type','text/plain')]
    start_response(status, response_headers)
    return ['WSGIserver is running!']

server = wsgiserver.WSGIServer(my_app)

Then point your browser to this URL: http://localhost:8080

WSGIserver can serve as many WSGI applications as you want in one instance by using a WSGIPathInfoDispatcher:

d = wsgiserver.WSGIPathInfoDispatcher({'/': my_app, '/blog': my_blog_app})
server = wsgiserver.WSGIServer(d)

To specify an host or a port:

server = wsgiserver.WSGIServer(my_app, host='', port=8080)

To add SSL support, just specify a certfile and a keyfile:

server = wsgiserver.WSGIServer(my_app, certfile='cert.pem', keyfile='privkey.pem')
