Buildout recipe to create paste.deploy entry points for mod_wsgi

Project description


This recipe creates a paste.deploy entry point for mod_wsgi.


This is a minimal ‘’buildout.cfg’’ file which creates a WSGI script mod_wsgi can use:

parts = wsgi

recipe = tranchitella.recipe.wsgi
eggs = myapplication
config-file = ${buildout:directory}/etc/deploy.ini
environ =

This will create a small python script in the bin directory called ‘’wsgi’’ which mod_wsgi can load. You can also use the optional ‘’extra-paths’’ option to specify extra paths that are added to the python system path.

You may also use the ‘’script-name’’ option to specify the name of the generated script file, if ‘’wsgi’’ is unsuitable.

The apache configuration for this buildout looks like this::

WSGIScriptAlias /mysite /path/to/buildout/bin/wsgi

<Directory /home/me/buildout>
    Order deny,allow
    Allow from all

This recipe does not fully install packages, which means that console scripts will not be created. If you need console scripts you can add a second buildout part which uses zc.recipe.egg to do a full install.
