Django runserver-like commands to run CherryPy web server

Project Description

cpserver is a Django application, which is intended to solve simple, yet useful task: run your Django project under CherryPy webserver. It contains two commands:

  • runcpdebug, which outputs information about each request (in format, similar to Apache’s access_log). It is useful as replacement for regular runserver command.
  • runcpserver, which is quite silent (it only tells you configuration after starting). It is useful for running as backend for Nginx or HAProxy or whatever you’d like to use.


It’s quite simple: put cpserver directory under your Python’s sys.path (in site-packages or in your Django project tree structure) and add ‘cpserver’ to INSTALLED_APPS setting.


Thanks to DjangoCerise project, from which I’ve taken initial code.
