A simple WSGI way to serve static (or mixed) content.

Project Description

This distribution provides an easy way to include static content in your WSGI applications. There is a convenience method for serving files located via pkg_resources. There are also facilities for serving mixed (static and dynamic) content using “magic” file handlers. Python builtin string substitution is provided and it is easy to roll your own handlers. Also provides a command of the same name as a convenience when you just want to share a little content over HTTP, ad hoc.

Note: A Python 2.7/3.3 compatible fork of Luke Arno’s static package.
