About this document

This document provides an overview of what Softwarefabrica Django AppServer is.

What is this?

This package is a stand-alone wrapping of CherryPy WSGI server to serve Django applications without the need of an external web server. This work has been inspired by the articles of Eric Florenzano, Steven Wilcox, and by DjangoCerise (by Loic d’Anterroches). Some code is derived directly by DjangoCerise.
