NWSGI and subprocess

In the last few days there have been two announcements about modules for IronPython:
  • NWSGI - a 0.1 binary release of a C# WSGI implementation. It comes with a 'Hello World' application, works with simple paste applications and almost works with CherryPy! It is very simple to deploy with IIS 7.
  • Subprocess for IronPython. The subprocess module is one of the biggest gaps in IronPython standard library support (this is the biggest reason that SCons can 't easily be got running on IronPython for example). This implementation (based on System.Diagnostics.Process) has limitations, but passes around 2/3 of the test suite for subprocess.
The good news is that one of the things that Dino was working on during the PyCon sprints, was better subprocess support for Django.

The 'soon-to-be-IronPython-commander-in-chief', Harry Pierson, has blogged a simple way to launch the Visual Studio development server for experimenting with NWSGI.
