WSGI Class

Configuration

The WSGI class contains several configuration properties for use in your app subclass.

class app(pycnic.core.WSGI):

    # logger: A Python logging Logger instance
    logger = logging.Logger(__name__)

    # before: A function that accepts a WSGI instance 
    # as its first argument. Executed before dispatching
    # the request. Does not need to return.
    before = None

    # after: A function that accepts a WSGI instance
    # as its first argument. Executed after dispatching 
    # the request if no errors are raised. Does not need to return.
    after = None

    # teardown: A function that accepts a WSGI instance
    # as its argument. Always executed at the end of the request
    # even if errors are raised.
    # New in v0.1.1
    teardown = None

    # headers: default headers to add to the response
    # on every successful request, or when an HTTP* error
    # is raised. In the format of [("key", "value"),("key", "value")]
    # New in v0.1.1
    headers = None

    # debug: Boolean. If true, will return error stacktraces
    # for uncaught exceptions and json will be pretty-formatted.
    debug = False

    # strip_path: Boolean. If true, paths with a trailing 
    # slash (/foo/bar/) will have the trailing slash removed 
    # (/foo/bar) before routing the request
    strip_path = True

    # routes: A list of (path, Handler()) tuples.
    routes = []
