Zope/WSGI[edit]

Might be worth mentioning a Zope/WSGI project: http://repoze.org/index.html

Introduction of WSGI[edit]

Abbreviation WSGI is not introduced before its first use.

--Mortense (talk) 15:47, 31 May 2010 (UTC)

I added it to the lead section; I think that should be enough? -- intgr [talk] 16:06, 31 May 2010 (UTC)

Dubious[edit]

Google App Engine is not on the web application framework side, but on the server side. --Abdull (talk) 13:05, 22 June 2011 (UTC)

So is nginx. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.25.182.96 (talk) 13:19, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

Google App Engine is more like a platform than a framework. You choose GAE which includes WSGI and then you choose other framework to complete your stack eg. GAE + Jinja2 + WTForm where you have one data layer framework (GAE), a template engine (Jinja2 or Django or other) and a form framework such as WTForms or Django. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 213.89.134.0 (talk) 16:21, 14 December 2011 (UTC)

Google App Engine is certainly the platform rather than the framework. webapp2 is the default framework for GAE. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Qsy (talkcontribs) 12:51, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

Google App Engine does not belong to this list, webapp2 does. Insipido (talk) 15:51, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

Lua equivalent[edit]

I was curious about the Lua equivalent. It's called WSAPI. Don't know if it makes sense to keep those in see also. 31.18.97.13 (talk) 16:47, 25 October 2011 (UTC)

Then say "webapp" or now "webapp2". 99.50.232.87 (talk) 07:17, 18 October 2011 (UTC)

Common name[edit]

  1. Is there a common/generic name that `wsgi` and `wsapi` fall under?
  2. Are these akin to things like CGI and FastCGI? (I doubt it)

I'm looking for a group name, I think it would be appropriate to say both wsgi and wsapi fall under some kind of "Web Server Interface" and "List of Web Server Interfaces" which could both outline the common role of a Web Server Interface, and list language-bound projected for `wggi` and `wsapi`

I've never heard of anyone calling these "web server interfaces" anything, including "web server interfaces". So such an article might get removed as a neologism. Perhaps ask on programmers.stackexchange.com or reddits /r/programmers. --OpenFuture (talk) 07:37, 15 July 2014 (UTC)
