A generic and extendable WebDAV server written in Python and based on WSGI.

Main features:

  • WsgiDAV is a stand-alone WebDAV server with SSL support, that can be installed and run as Python command line script on Linux, OSX, and Windows:

    $ pip install wsgidav cheroot
    $ wsgidav --host= --port=80 --root=/tmp --auth=anonymous
    Running without configuration file.
    10:54:16.597 - INFO    : WsgiDAV/4.0.0-a1 Python/3.9.1 macOS-12.0.1-x86_64-i386-64bit
    10:54:16.598 - INFO    : Registered DAV providers by route:

    Run wsgidav --help for a list of available options.

  • The python-pam library is needed as extra requirement if pam-login authentication is used on Linux or OSX:

    $ pip install wsgidav[pam]
    $ wsgidav --host= --port=8080 --root=/tmp --auth=pam-login
  • Note: Windows users may prefer the MSI Installer (see Assets section), or use winget:

    > winget install wsgidav
  • WebDAV is a superset of HTTP, so WsgiDAV is also a performant, multi-threaded web server with SSL support.

  • WsgiDAV is also a Python library that implements the WSGI protocol and can be run behind any WSGI compliant web server.

  • WsgiDAV is implemented as a configurable stack of WSGI middleware applications.
    Its open architecture allows to extend the functionality and integrate WebDAV services into your project.
    Typical use cases are:

    • Expose data structures as virtual, editable file systems.
    • Allow online editing of MS Office documents.
