Wrapper to integrate CGI scripts into django views.

Project description

Wrapper to integrate CGI scripts into django views.

Simple function to wrap old-style CGI scripts/binaries to integrate them into the views of a django app.

This method preserves the shortcommings of the CGI deployment, but may be adequate when the performance hit caused by CGI spawning a new process for each request is negligible, a legacy CGI executable needs to be embedded in a new application or the ease of deployment is a priority.

Data returned by the CGI will be streamed to the client.


from django_cgi_wrap import cgi_wrap

def example_view(request):
    return cgi_wrap(request, "/usr/bin/mapserv")

Also see the “tests” directory for a working example as well as the doc-strings of the module itself.
