uWSGI

uWSGI lets me deploy flask applications without having to run the built in server.

This page helped me: http://markjberger.com/flask-with-virtualenv-uwsgi-nginx/

and this: http://uwsgi-docs.readthedocs.io

apt-get install uwsgi uwsgi-plugin-python

In the virtualenv environment install uwsgi

source venv/bin/activate
pip install uwsgi

You can run from command line to test it

uwsgi -s 192.168.1.2:5001 --protocol=http --wsgi-file /var/lib/twilio-weatherman/pyweatherman/wsgi.py 

and this should work: http://192.168.1.2:5001/home/

Right now I only need to deploy a single app, so I just hacked a shell script and set it to run at boot.

/var/lib/twilio-weatherman/pyweatherman/uwsgi.sh

I changed nginx to work with it.

Building Nginx for Owncloud and Windows

The reason is to get digest authentication, so that I can use Windows 7 as a WebDAV client.

So far this is a FAIL.

  1. I cannot convince Windows to store a self-signed certificate.
  2. I can't get digest authentication to work with owncloud.

If I did succeed then I would need a Docker container so that I can load it in the Synology server.

Windows is a pain.

git clone https://github.com/samizdatco/nginx-http-auth-digest.git
cd nginx-1*
./configure --add-module=../nginx-http-auth-digest/ --with-http_ssl_module --with-cc-opt=-Wno-error
make
sudo make install
