A partyline middleware for WSGI with good intentions.

Project Description

wsgi_party’s goals for Python web developers:

  1. Refactor legacy projects one route at a time; graft instead of rewrite.
  2. Try new ideas from meetups/conferences in isolation; increase velocity.
  3. Integrate multiple web frameworks; use the right tool for the job.

wsgi_party is for WSGI framework developers. See individual frameworks and extensions for support. The initial intent was to build URLs across independent applications, but other exchanges are possible if they are supported by all frameworks in use.

The wsgi_party module provides the WSGIParty middleware which allows all mounted applications to hook in handlers for cross-application communication within a single WSGI process. Mount individual applications in a dispatcher, then wrap the dispatcher with WSGIParty. Applications can then ask each other for information with simple in-process messages. Messages are synchronous and namespaced, and must be explicitly supported by Python web frameworks or their extensions.

BSD licensed. Install with:

pip install wsgi_party
