WSGIProxy2 0.4.4

A WSGI Proxy with various http client backends


With pip:

$ pip install WSGIProxy2

Install optionnal backends:

$ pip install requests restkit urllib3


Create a proxy:

>>> from wsgiproxy import HostProxy
>>> proxy = HostProxy(application_url)

Then use it. Here is an example with WebOb but you can use it like a classic WSGI application:

>>> from webob import Request
>>> req = Request.blank('/form.html')
>>> resp = req.get_response(proxy)
>>> print(resp.text)

The Proxy application accept some keyword arguments. Those arguments are passed to the client during the process.

If no client as specified then python httplib is used. It’s recommended to use a more robust client able to manage a connection pool and stuff.

Use urllib3:

>>> proxy = HostProxy(application_url, client='urllib3')

Use requests. This client support response streaming:

>>> proxy = HostProxy(application_url, client='requests')

Use restkit. This client support request and response streaming but does not support python3 (will be fixed with the next release):

>>> proxy = HostProxy(application_url, client='restkit') # doctest: +SKIP
