Jonathan Ellis mentioned creating a spyceRequest subclass for
WSGI on his blog before at:
Any chance we'll see this? I've been looking at Mako as a possible
Spyce replacement. The problem with Mako is that it is merely
a templating language and you have to pair it with a server and
a whole bunch of other crap/rigmarole.
Frankly I am SICK-TO-DEATH of having to figure out all the so-called
solutions out there (I've looked at: Pylons, Paste, Cherry.py,
Turbogears, Spawning, Django, Werkzeug, web2py, web.py, Bottle,
GAE, WebStack, and god knows half a dozen more stuff) which are
all an order of magnitude more complicated than Spyce.
Good grief, I just want to set up a bunch of configuration lines
with Apache and be able to just do:
<% print "yo" %>
and be done with it. Now *THAT* is Pythonic.
We need a mod_wsgi version because mod_python is getting long
in the tooth. You can still do fcgi (with lighttpd only I
think, Apache doesn't work) and proxied (load-balanced?)
standalone server, but I would really prefer a mod_xxxx
(mod_wsgi) solution which seems to have a long life ahead
