A WSGI Server for Circus

Project description

Chaussette is a WSGI server. The particularity of Chaussette is that it can either bind a socket on a port like any other server does or run against already opened sockets.

That makes Chaussette the best companion to run a WSGI or Django stack under a process and socket manager, such as Circus.

Quick Start

Running:

chaussette

starts a very simple HTTP sample server on port 8080.

Starting a WSGI application using chaussette is simply a matter of calling:

chaussette examples.tornadoapp.wsgiapp

Chaussette can also serve tornado (non WSGI) application:

chaussette --backend tornado examples.tornadoapp.tornadoapp

The simple_chat example can be started as:

chaussette --backend socketio examples.simple_chat.chat.app

Note that the two previous examples are not backend agnostic, since they are not (pure) WSGI applications.

A flask based pure WSGI application can be started with most backends:

chaussette --backend gevent examples.flaskapp.app

In these examples, we start a standalone WSGI server, but the spirit of chaussette is to be managed by Circus, as described http://chaussette.readthedocs.org/en/latest/#using-chaussette-in-circus

Changelog

1.3.0 - 2015-06-01

  • Fix gevent monkey patching (pull request #67).
  • Add a “–graceful-timeout” option (for gevent-based backends).
  • Fix the tornado backend so that it accepts tornado’s WSGIApplication instaces.
  • Update documentation.
  • Improve example applications.
