API documentation for twod.wsgi

Enhanced WSGI support for Django applications.

class twod.wsgi.DjangoApplication

Bases: django.core.handlers.wsgi.WSGIHandler

Django request handler which uses our enhanced WSGI request class.


alias of TwodWSGIRequest

class twod.wsgi.TwodResponse(content='', mimetype=None, status=None, *args, **kwargs)

Bases: django.http.HttpResponse

Django-based response class which keeps the HTTP status reason phrase.

The original implementation in Django simply keeps the status code and does not allow developers to use custom HTTP status reason phrase, which is explicitly allowed by the HTTP specification: http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec6.html

class twod.wsgi.handler.TwodWSGIRequest(environ)

Bases: django.core.handlers.wsgi.WSGIRequest, webob.request.Request

Pythonic proxy for the WSGI environment.

This class is the Django request extended by WebOb’s request. Where they both have the same members, Django’s take precedence. For example, .GET uses django.core.handlers.wsgi.WSGIRequest.GET instead of webob.Request.GET.

To access WebOb’s GET and POST dictionaries, you have to use .uGET and .uPOST respectively.
