Please do it!

I’m equally happy with bug reports/feature ideas and code contributions. If you have any questions/issues, I’m happy to help!

For starters, here are a few ideas what to work on. :-)


  • Super easy to set up – no configuration required
  • Syntax highlighting
  • Git Smart HTTP support


pip install klaus

Using the klaus script

NOTE: This is intended for testing/low-traffic local installations only! The klaus script uses wsgiref internally which doesn’t scale at all (in fact it’s single-threaded and non-asynchronous).

To run klaus using the default options:

klaus [repo1 [repo2 ...]]

For more options, see:

klaus --help

Using a real server

The klaus module contains a make_app function which returns a WSGI app.

An example WSGI helper script is provided with klaus (see klaus/contrib/, configuration being read from environment variables. Use it like this (uWSGI example):

uwsgi -w klaus.contrib.wsgi \
      --env KLAUS_SITE_NAME="Klaus Demo" \
      --env KLAUS_REPOS="/path/to/repo1 /path/to/repo2 ..." \

Gunicorn example:

gunicorn --env KLAUS_SITE_NAME="Klaus Demo" \
         --env KLAUS_REPOS="/path/to/repo1 /path/to/repo2 ..." \
