Tired of using
paster serve --reload development.ini and waiting for your code to reload ?
memento allows you to dynamically reload your code -- without restarting your whole server -- or parts of your code.
$ easy_install memento
To integrate with Pylons, follow these steps:
Go to your
config/middleware.py, and add:
Then, a bit lower, replace:
def make_app(...): ... # The Pylons WSGI app app = PylonsApp() ...
def make_app(...): ... # The Pylons WSGI app #app = PylonsApp() app = memento.Assassin('pylons.wsgiapp:PylonsApp()', ['yourpackage']) ...
The second parameter to
Assassin() is a list of packages you want reloaded on each request. You probably want your whole package to be reloaded, or you can be more granular.
NOTE: don't forget the
() after the PylonsApp, because it has to call the object to get a WSGI app. You'll get errors otherwise
The neat thing is I think you can disable that in real-time also, by changing the value of app.mode ('on' = 'on and 'off' = 'off, as you've guessed), so I guess you'd like to keep a copy of that 'app' before you lose it's reference lower in
