Fork of the standard library cgi and cgitb modules, being deprecated in PEP-594

Project description

This is a fork of the standard library modules cgi and cgitb. They are slated to be removed from the Python standard libary in Python 3.13 by PEP-594.


Install the legacy-cgi package from PyPI:

$ pip install legacy-cgi


The purpose of this fork is to support existing CGI scripts using these modules. Thus, compatibility is the primary goal.

Contributions are accepted, but should be focused on bug fixes instead of new features or major refactoring.

New applications should look at the WSGI ecosystem. There’s a number of highly-polished web frameworks available, and it’s significantly faster in a typical deployment given a new Python process does not need created for each request.
