Mount your Flask or WSGI app in your Django app.

Project description


Trappist is a Python library which allows you to mount your Flask or other WSGI application inside of your Django application. It translates a call to a “Django view” to a call to a WSGI, and handles the translation of the Flask app response back as a Django HttpResponse object.


Trappist is hosted on Pypi, so a simple pip install trappist or easy_install trappist should do the trick.


To use Trappist, simply construct a new Trappist object to wrap your existing WSGI application, and call mounted_at('/path') to mount the app at that location. For example, here is a “blog” WSGI app mounted at ‘/blog’ inside an existing Django application:

from django.conf.urls.defaults import patterns, include, url
from my_blog import app
from trappist import Trappist

urlpatterns = patterns('',
    (r'^articles/(?P<year>\d{4})/$', 'news.views.year_archive'),
    (r'^comments/', include('django.contrib.comments.urls'))

The root of the blog application would then be accessible at /blog, relative to the Django application root.

Note: The mountpoint passed to mounted_at must be a string with a leading forward slash (/). Any other form of mountpoint prefix is not supported.
