While Wille is designed to primarily run on a local machine, it may be deployed into a server as well. A notable drawback in Wille is that it does not support any standard server interface such as WSGI, therefore requiring us to manage the server process by some other means.
One (hacky) option for running Wille on a Linux server is to use nohup. For instance:
nohup python wille-server.py -p 8080 -v public
Now verify that the process is running:
ps -ext | grep wille
If everything went fine, you should be able to use the server with a browser by navigating to:

In order to create a standalone deployment of Wille running on Jython, we recommend using the following folder structure:
your-application-root/ apps/ services/ scripts/ jython/ ... Lib/ site-packages/ wille/ httplib2/ pyjavaproperties/ feedparser/ argparse/
You may achieve the structure by proceeding as follows: * Cope Jython under jython
- Since Jython is quick big (around 40 MB), you may want to exclude some parts that are not necessary for simply running Jython. These include Docs, Demo and tests folders.
- Note that you also need to copy all depending libraries under site-packages as well
- Copy apps, services and scripts under your application root
Now you should be able to run Wille server by invoking:
java -jar jython/jython.jar wille-server.py
