The uWSGI server

Project description

The uWSGI server as a Python module


pip install pyuwsgi


uWSGI will get installed to your Python path with a console script named pyuwsgi. To make it a full drop-in replacement it will install a script named uwsgi as well.

You can also call it directly in your Python code with a list of valid uWSGI options:

import pyuwsgi["--help"])

Differences from uWSGI

This is built from uWSGI's source without any modifications. A different is used to make the project a friendlier part of the Python ecosystem. It allows it to be imported as a Python module and distributed using the wheel format. The pre-packaged wheels include the following common libraries used by uWSGI:

SSL is intentionally excluded for security reasons. If you need SSL support, you can force a wheel to be built locally with the pip flag --no-binary=pyuwsgi.

In addition to the default plugins, the stats_pusher_statsd plugin is included by default in pyuwsgi where it is typically optional for uWSGI.

The full uWSGI documentation can be found at


uWSGI is licensed GPLv2 with a linking exception which means you are allowed to use uWSGI (or pyuwsgi) unmodified in a proprietary or otherwise non-GPL licensed project without invoking the GPL on the rest of the code.

The full license can be found on GitHub.
