A common WSGI stack

Project description Documentation Status Requirements Status Python code quality (LGTM) LGTM alerts

Talisker is an enhanced runtime for your WSGI application that aims to provide a common operational platform for your python microservices.

It integrates with many standard python libraries to give you out-of-the-box logging, metrics, error reporting, status urls and more.

Quick Start

Simply install Talisker via pip:

pip install talisker

And then run your WSGI app with Talisker (as if it was regular gunicorn).:

talisker.gunicorn app:wsgi -c ...

This gives you 80% of the benefits of Talisker: structured logging, metrics, sentry error handling, standardised status endpoints and more.

Elevator Pitch

Talisker integrates and configures standard python libraries into a single tool, useful in both development and production. It provides:

  • structured logging for stdlib logging module (with grok filter)

  • gunicorn as a wsgi runner

  • request id tracing

  • standard status endpoints

  • statsd/prometheus metrics for incoming/outgoing http requests and more.

  • deep sentry integration

It also optionally supports the same level of logging/metrics/sentry integration for:

  • celery workers

  • general python scripts, like cron jobs or management tasks.

Talisker is opinionated, and designed to be simple to use. As such, it is not currently very configurable. However, PR’s are very welcome!
