WSGI from buildout

Project description


‘’collective.recipe.modwsgi’’ is a zc.buildout recipe which creates a paste.deploy entry point for mod_wsgi.

It is very simple to use. This is a minimal ‘’buildout.cfg’’ file which creates a WSGI script mod_python can use:

parts = mywsgiapp

recipe = collective.recipe.modwsgi
eggs = mywsgiapp
config-file = ${buildout:directory}/production.ini

This will create a small python script in parts/mywsgiapp called ‘’wsgi’’ which mod_python can load.

The apache configuration for this buildout looks like this::

WSGIScriptAlias /mysite /home/me/buildout/parts/mywsgiapp/wsgi

<Directory /home/me/buildout>
    Order deny,allow
    Allow from all

This recipe does not fully install packages, which means that console scripts will not be created. If you need console scripts you can add a second buildout part which uses zc.recipe.egg or repoze.recipe.egg to do a full install.


1.0b2 - June 13, 2008

  • Call the Eggs constructor as well: working_set() needs too many of the internal variables it sets for us to set them ourselves. This fixes the recipe breaking when using find-links in buildout. [wichert]
