Run CGI apps under Python WSGI protocol

Project description

Run CGI apps under Python WSGI protocol (PEP 333).

This is a simple WSGI application that executes an external process and translates the WSGI protocol to the Common Gateway Interface (CGI).

Example:

from wsgiref.simple_server import make_server import wsgi2cgi

def app(environ, start_response):
wapp = wsgi2cgi.CGI(‘/path/to/executable.cgi’) return wapp.application(environ, start_response)

httpd = make_server(‘127.0.0.1’, 8000, app) print “Serving on 127.0.0.1:8000…” httpd.serve_forever()

The CGI class supports two arguments:

  • command: absolute path to the CGI application executable.
  • extra_env: additional environment variables.

The WSGI application can be used with any server supporting WSGI.
