A set of tool for synchronizing local modification to remoteWSGI server, makes life of designer easier

Project description

NowSync is a set of tool for synchronizing local modification to remote WSGI server, makes life of designer easier.

How it works

There is two part of NowSync, one is the server, it runs your WSGI application and its own WSGI application for file synchronizing. And the other part of NowSync is the client, it monitors changes in local folders, if those files are changed, it will upload those modifications to remote server.

Which means, the designer doesn’t have to run a local application, all they have to do is get a copy of the application in his local computer, and run the NowSync client.


To install NowSync, type:

easy_install nowsync

Or, if you perfer pip:

pip install nowsync


To run NowSync, you need to write a configuration file, it will be read both by the client and server, it is in YAML format, here is an example:


# show we turn on the debug mode of NowSync server?
debug: True

# NowSync server
    port: 5001
    # can be accessed by users only
    user_only: True
    # are we under a proxy?
    under_proxy: True

# guest WSGI app server to run
    port: 5000
    user_only: True
    under_proxy: True
    # the path of WSGI application to run
    # wsgi here is the module, and application is the variable name in
    # the module
    app_path: wsgi:application

    # url to NowSync API

    # user name
    username: alvin
    password: password_goes_here

# path to directory to sync
sync_path: .

# files that we want to sync
sync_files: [

# files that we don't want to sync
ignore_files: [

# users who can access to NowSync server or guest application
    alvin: password_goes_here


Put the configuration file nowsync.yaml in the folder of your project. The structure may look like this:

    + nowsync.yaml
    + myproject/
        + static/
        + templates/
        + models/
        + views/

How to use

To run nowsync server, here you type:


And you should see:

running nowsync_server
INFO:nowsync.server:Start new process
INFO:werkzeug: * Running on
 * Running on

With proper configuration in project folder, all designer has to do is get a copy of your project, and run:

cd myproject

For now, it synchronizes files in myproject, your designer just modify the template, CSS and images, and all the modifications will reflect in the remote WSGI server.
