[kforge-dev] KForge with WSGI

Hi Rufus,

Thought you would be interested to know that, after a little 
investigation, it appears simple to serve "Kui" (the KForge UI) as a 
WSGI application. Steps are:

1. Create a file (e.g. /path/to/service/wsgi/kforge.wsgi):
import os, sys
sys.path.append('/path/to/system') # or activate a virtual env...
os.environ['DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE'] = 'kforge.django.settings.main'
import django.core.handlers.wsgi
os.environ['KFORGE_SETTINGS'] = '/path/to/service/etc/kforge.conf'
application = django.core.handlers.wsgi.WSGIHandler()

2. Replace the entire "Kforge 'Django' section" of the KForge Apache 
configuration file with:

WSGIScriptAlias / /path/to/service/wsgi/kforge.wsgi

3. Enable mod_wsgi. Restart Apache. That's it!

Still several practicalities, such as generation of the kforge.wsgi 
file, and the separate matter of the conditional basic auth and other 
handlers for project services.

But at least Kui appears to work perfectly well through WSGI.

Best wishes,
