NGINXpy

Documentation Status Updates

Embed Python in NGINX.

Features

  • Standard Python package with Cython extension
  • Automatically build into NGINX dynamic module for current NGINX install
  • Run embeded Python in NGINX worker processes
  • Write NGINX modules in Python or Cython
  • Python logging module redirected to NGINX error.log
  • (ongoing) NGINX event loop wrapped as Python asyncio interface
  • (TBD) Python and Cython interface to most NGINX code
  • (TBD) Adapt NGINX web server to WSGI, ASGI and aiohttp interfaces

Installation

  1. Install NGINX in whatever way, make sure nginx command is available.
  2. pip install nginxpy, or get the source and run pip install .. You may want to add the -v option, because the process is a bit slow downloading Cython, NGINX source code and configuring it. The usual python setup.py install currently doesn't work separately - you should run python setup.py build first.
  3. Run python -c 'import nginx' to get NGINX configuration hint.
  4. Update NGINX configuration accordingly and reload NGINX.
  5. Visit your NGINX site, see NGINX error.log for now.

Development

  1. Install NGINX in whatever way, make sure nginx command is available.
  2. Checkout source code.
  3. Run python setup.py build && python setup.py develop.
  4. Run python -c 'import nginx' to get NGINX configuration hint.
  5. Update NGINX configuration accordingly and reload NGINX.
  6. Visit your NGINX site, see NGINX error.log for now.
  7. Change code if result is not satisfying, or else go for pull request.
  8. Goto 3 if Cython code was changed, or else goto 5.

Surprisingly NGINX has a very simple but powerful architecture, learn about it here: http://nginx.org/en/docs/dev/development_guide.html
