The egg has those entry point:

  • wsgi: Make a Python paste configuration file eatable by mod_wsgi with all the eggs dependencies you need.

You can browse the code on minitage's following resources:


  • This recipe is inspired by collective.recipe.modwsgi but use minitage code to generate a wrapper to launch a paste configuration file, suitable for mod_mwsgi.
  • This recipe inherit from minitage;recipe:egg.
  • I recommend Spawning to be the WSGI server, but in the wonderful world of system administration, you don't have always the choice of the final technology to use. This will help to to use mod_wsgi with buildout based installations.
Specific options
  • All the shared options and the options from minitage.recipe:egg +

  • config-file

    full path to the paste configuration file to use

Detailled documentation

Let's create a buildout configuration file:

>>> rmdir(tempdir)
>>> mkdir(tempdir)
>>> cd(tempdir)
>>> a = [mkdir(d) for d in ('eggs', 'develop-eggs', 'bin', 'src')]
>>> install_develop_eggs(['minitage.recipe.wsgi'])
>>> install_eggs_from_pathes(['zc.buildout'], sys.path)
>>> touch('buildout.cfg')
>>> sh('buildout -o bootstrap')
buildout -o bootstrap...
>>> index_url = start_server(os.path.sep.join(tempdir))
Initializing test env.
>>> if os.path.exists('foo'): rmdir(foo)
>>> mkdir('foo')
>>> mkdir('foo/src/toto')
>>> touch('foo/setup.py', data="""
... from setuptools import setup, find_packages
... setup(name='foo', version='1.0',
...     packages=find_packages('src'),
...     package_dir = {'': 'src'},
...     include_package_data=True,
...     scripts=['src/toto/toto.py'],
...     entry_points={'console_scripts': ['s=toto.toto:f']},
...     )
... """)
>>> touch('foo/src/toto/__init__.py')
>>> touch('toto.cfg')
>>> touch('foo/src/toto/toto.py', data="""
... def f():
...     print "foo"
... if __name__ == '__main__' :
...     print 'called'
... """)
>>> noecho = [os.remove(d) for d in os.listdir('.') if '.tar.gz' in d]
>>> os.chdir('foo')
>>> sh('python setup.py sdist')
>>> noecho = [shutil.copy(os.path.join('dist', d), os.path.join('..', d)) for d in os.listdir('dist')]
>>> os.chdir('..')
Generating a mod_mwsgi friendly configuration

Do not specify the file option.

>>> data = """
