Well, don't panic. In the land of Python, everything is just a few lines of code away.
I'll assume you already have the systems libraries from my last blog post installed from this point on. If you haven't.. here's the list of things you need to install into your Linux system.
# apt-get install libevent-2.0 libevent-dev python-dev python-virtualenv
So that's 1 line of code to set up the environment - if you haven't done it already.
Next, we'll setup the sandbox for the web server - it's not absolutely needed but it's good practice to sandbox web applications with virtualenv in Python. We'll also enter the sandbox to work inside it.
$ virtualenv myapp $ cd myapp $ . bin/activate3 lines of code to initialize and enter the virtualenv sandbox - not absolutely required, but good for library hygiene.
Next, we'll install a few things to our sandbox.
$ pip install gevent gunicorn pyramidIf you've got the system libraries installed correctly, it should be fully automatic - it won't even ask you a single Y/N question.
Finally, we conjure up a web server and start it.
$ pcreate -s starter myapp $ python myapp/setup.py install $ gunicorn_paster -w8 -kgevent --keep-alive 60 myapp/production.iniAnd... and... RUMBLE... It's alive!!! (gunicorn_paster listens on 0.0.0.0:6543 by default)
Look Ma! Zero lines of Python! And it's working already!
Looking under the hood - inside the myapp/myapp/static directory of the sandbox...
