Configure uWSGI from your Python code
If you think you know uWSGI you're probably wrong. It is always more than you think it is. There are so many subsystems and options (800+) it is difficult to even try to wrap your mind around.
uwsgiconf allowing to define uWSGI configurations in Python tries to improve things the following ways:
- It structures options for various subsystems using classes and methods;
- It uses docstrings and sane naming to facilitate navigation;
- It ships some useful presets to reduce boilerplate code;
- It encourages configuration reuse;
- It comes with CLI to facilitate configuration;
- It features easy to use and documented uwsgi stub Python module;
- It offers runtime package, similar to uwsgidecorators, but with more abstractions;
- It features integration with Django Framework;
- It is able to generate configuration files for Systemd, Upstart.
Consider using IDE with autocompletion and docstings support to be more productive with uwsgiconf.
By that time you already know that uwsgiconf is just another configuration method. Why?
uwsgicfg.py. There we configure uWSGI using nice
PythonSection preset to run our web app.
from uwsgiconf.config import configure_uwsgi from uwsgiconf.presets.nice import PythonSection def get_configurations(): """This should return one or more Section or Configuration objects. In such a way you can configure more than one uWSGI instance in the same place. Here we'll define just one configuration section, which will instruct uWSGI to serve WSGI application (from wsgi.py module) on http://127.0.0.1:8000 """ section = PythonSection( wsgi_module='/home/idle/myapp/wsgi.py', ).networking.register_socket( PythonSection.networking.sockets.http('127.0.0.1:8000')) return section # Almost done. One more thing: configure_uwsgi(get_configurations)
Now if you want to generate
myconf.inifile and use it for uWSGI manually you can do it with:
$ uwsgiconf compile > myconf.ini $ uwsgi myconf.ini
uwsgiconfto automatically spawn uWSGI processes for configurations defined in your module:
$ uwsgiconf run
uwsgiconf CLI requires
click package available (can be installed with
uwsgiconf comes with
runtime package which is similar to uwsgidecorators but offers different abstractions.
These abstractions will also use a stub
uwsgi module when the real one is not available.
A couple of examples:
from uwsgiconf.runtime.locking import lock from uwsgiconf.runtime.scheduling import register_timer_rb @register_timer_rb(10, repeat=2) def repeat_twice(): """This function will be called twice with 10 seconds interval (by default in first available mule) using red-black tree based timer. """ with lock(): # Code under this context manager will be locked # using default (0) uWSGI lock. do_something()
Django. Run your Django-based project on uWSGI using manage command:
$ ./manage.py uwsgi_run $ ./manage.py uwsgi_reload --force
Other commands are available.
Compile system service config (e.g
systemd) to run your uWSGI-powered project:
$ uwsgiconf sysinit systemd
