2. Deploy a CubicWeb application

2.1. Deployment with uwsgi

uWSGI is often used to deploy CubicWeb applications.

Short version is install uwsgi:

apt install uwsgi

Deploy a configuration file for your application /etc/uwsgi/apps-enabled/example.ini:

master = true
http =
env = CW_INSTANCE=example
wsgi-file = /etc/cubicweb.d/example/wsgiapp.py
processes = 8
threads = 1
plugins = http,python3
auto-procname = true
lazy-apps = true
log-master = true
# disable uwsgi request logging
disable-logging = true
stats =

The wsgiapp.py file looks like this:

import os
from cubicweb.pyramid import wsgi_application_from_cwconfig
from cubicweb.cwconfig import CubicWebConfiguration as cwcfg

appid = os.environ['CW_INSTANCE']  # instance name
cwconfig = cwcfg.config_for(appid)

cwconfig.log_format = ('{0} pid:{1} (%(name)s) %(levelname)s: %(message)s'
                       .format(appid, os.getpid()))

application = wsgi_application_from_cwconfig(cwconfig)
repo = application.application.registry['cubicweb.repository']

2.2. Deployment with SaltStack

To deploy with SaltStack one can refer themselves to the cubicweb-formula.

2.3. Deployment with Kubernetes

To deploy in a Kubernetes cluster, you can take inspiration from the instructions included in the fresh cube and the deployment yaml files.
