Amnesia eases web development by reloading WSGI apps and imported modules before each request.

Project Description
Amnesia reloads modules on-the-fly as an aid for development

of WSGI compliant applications. Amnesia is meant to be used like a standalone executable, running on the shell like amnesia mymodule my_wsgi_app or as a WSGI Middleware as follows:

>>> from wsgiref.simple_server import make_server
>>> from amnesia import Amnesia
>>> my_reloading_app = Amnesia("mymodule", "wsgi_app")
>>> if __name__ == "__main__":
>>>     httpd = make_server("", 8080, my_reloading_app)
>>>     print("Running on localhost:8080...")
>>>     print("Modify your app and refresh your browser's page.")
>>>     httpd.serve_forever()
