Django developer discovers WSGI…

What happens when django developers discover WSGI?

Mark Ramm wasn’t full of hot air when he talked about this at DjangoCon or blogged about it later. He was right, and I for one wish I had listened sooner.

Good to know not everybody thinks I’m just a blowhard ;)

And I would also like to mention that what I asked Django developers to do was not to stop writing Django middleware — just to consider sometimes writing wsgi middleware, since it’s more widely reusable.

But, there are trade-offs everywhere, and if your middleware:

  1. isn’t helpful the the wider web world,
  2. or is way, way easier to write as Django middleware

Then don’t use wsgi to write it.
