Middleware for use Storm ORM in WSGI applications

Project description


Storm is a fast, small and powerful object-relational mapper. Try it to use in web-aware applications.

WSGI application mainly miltithreaded, but Store object is not thread safe.

Middlestorm middleware manage Store objects (one per thread) and add it into environ dictonary.

Simple example

There are 3 ways to create middleware:
  • class
  • decorator
  • Paste configuration

Class middleware:

from wsgiref.simple_server import make_server
from storm.database import create_database

from middlestorm import MiddleStorm

def storm_app(environ, start_response):
    store = environ['']
    # ...

db = create_database('postgres://user:password@host/base')
app = MiddleStorm(storm_app, db)

make_server('', 8000, app).serve_forever()

Decorator middleware:

from wsgiref.simple_server import make_server
from storm.database import create_database

import middlestorm

def storm_app(environ, start_response):
    store = environ['']
    # ...

make_server('', 8000, storm_app).serve_forever()

To create middleware via Paste configuration, add a stanza to the .ini file:

use = middlestorm#middlestorm
db_uri = sqlite:myapp.db

and then add that filter to the Paste pipeline (again, in the .ini file):

pipeline =

By default Store placed in variable This can be customized:

app = MiddleStorm(storm_app, db, key='custom.mystore')

or decorator style:

@middlestorm.decorator(db, key='custom.mystore')
def storm_app(environ, start_response):
    store = environ['custom.mystore']

or in the Paste configuration:

use = middlestorm#middlestorm
db_uri = sqlite:myapp.db
key =
