Houdini 20.0 hwebserver

hwebserver.registerWSGIApp function

Function used to register a wsgi capable application such as django to be used on a path prefix.

registerWSGIApp(application=(), path=None, ports=[])

This function allows you to hook in a wsgi capable application such as flask or django and use the houdini web server as the server backend.

import os
import hwebserver
import testsite.wsgi

hwebserver.registerWSGIApp(testsite.wsgi.application, "/")
hwebserver.run(8000, debug=True)


Currently multi part form requests are not fully supported with wsgi. If you need to use these requests you can continue to use hou url handlers.
