WSGI from buildout

Project description

‘’mk.recipe.modwsgi’’ is a zc.buildout recipe which creates entry point for mod_wsgi. It’s based on ‘’collective.recipe.modwsgi’’ but I decided to create it after failed to find recipe that generate plain mod_wsgi script instead of one that use Paste.

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 = mk.recipe.modwsgi
eggs = mywsgiapp
wsgi-module = mywsgiapp.wsgi

This will create a small python script in parts/mywsgiapp called ‘’wsgi’’ which mod_wsgi can load. You can also use the optional ‘’extra-paths’’ option to specify extra paths that are added to the python system path. The script will import application attribute from the wsgi-module specified.

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

If the python script must be accessed from somewhere else than the buildout parts folder, you can use the optional ‘’target’’ option to tell the recipe where the script should be created.

For instance, the configuration for the mywsgiapp part could look like this:

recipe = collective.recipe.modwsgi
eggs = mywsgiapp
target = /var/www/myapp.wsgi
wsgi-module = mywsgiapp.wsgi

The recipe would then create the script at /var/www/myapp.wsgi.

Note that the directory containing the target script must already exist on the filesystem prior to running the recipe and be writeable.

The apache configuration for this buildout would then look like this:

WSGIScriptAlias /mysite /var/www/myapp.wsgi

<Directory /var/www>
    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 z3c.recipe.scripts to do a full install.
