Today Jeff Hardy announced on the IronPython list, the first release of NWSGI, an implementation of WSGI compliant server for IronPython 2.0. written in C# as a ASP.NET HttpHandler.

Currently it runs simple WSGI applications but has problems with the larger Python web frameworks due to bugs in IronPython 2.0 and NWSGI. Hopefully as IronPython 2.0 matures and Jeff continues to work on NWSGI, the will become less of an issue.

An implementation of a WSGI server for IronPython 1.0 is available with FePy


  1. It's not a WSGI implementation, unfortunately. At least .close() handling and start_response(exc_info) are missing.

  2. Well, it's the start of a WSGI implementation :). I make no promises about it being useful (yet). I'm just trying to see what kind of interest there is in a .NET WSGI implemetation.

  3. Well, at Resolver we are interested.

    We have a server product that would do well as a WSGI component. (Especially one that can easily be plugged into IIS as well as into Python web frameworks.)
