wsgi_lineprof is a WSGI middleware for line-by-line profiling.

wsgi_lineprof has the following features:

  • WSGI middleware: It can be integrated with any WSGI-compatible applications and frameworks including Django, Pyramid, Flask, Bottle, and more.
  • Easily pluggable: All configurations for profiling in one place. Users don't need to make any changes to their application.

wsgi_lineprof is not recommended to be used in production environment because of the overhead of profiling.
