production

Like any Flask app, this can be deployed using WSGI, using for example libapache2-mod-wsgi or gunicorn. See src/umber.wsgi, env/production, and docs/readme.txt for more information.

deployed

I was using this for my courses at cs.marlboro.college, running on a linode using apache mod_wsgi and password authentication.

And I am using it my courses at cs.bennington.college, running on another linode using nginx, uwsgi, and openid authentication.
