I'm new to this list and Yaws. I've read the Yaws docs and did some searching on how to use fastCGI with it, but can't
seem to find a recipe.
I am trying to use a "ticket tracker" app built with python. The recommended method to use this product is via Apache
fastCGI to the python code.
I would like to use Yaws instead. For example, my site named: http://www.sample.com would have a url path of
http://www.sample.com/tracker mapped to an appmod to handle this part of the web site.
I would like some recommendations on how to make fastCGI calls to the python app.
thanks, ke han

Yaws does not have FastCGI support. It does have CGI though, and I
would think that you can get the web app in question to run via CGI if
this is fast enough for your purposes.

Then this will very likely be the easiest route.
FastCGI could be added to Yaws, if you would want to do so, you should
use the FastCGI documentation and the CGI code in yaws. I looked into
it and seem to remember that there was a part that was not
straightforward, but it is definitely possible. I am not sure if it
is worth it, however.

I'm not trying to convince you to not use the python based ticket tracker,
but you could take a look at:
It's a ticket tracker implemented in Yaws.
I have a CGI python script. It expects that when the CGI is called an environment variable called TRAC_ENV will be set.
I don't see how the current CGI api supports passing environment info. I'm making the call from an appmod.
