With OpenShift you can host WSGI Python applications. By default the Python cartridge comes with a simple WSGI app and the following directory layout
./ ./.openshift/ ./requirements.txt ./setup.py ./wsgi.py
I wanted to add my GitHub Bugzilla Hook in a subdirectory (git submodule actually) and simply reserve a URL which will be served by this app. My intention is also to add other small scripts to the same cartridge in order to better utilize the available resources.
.htaccess DOESN'T WORK! OpenShift errors
WSGIScriptAlias is present. I suspect this to be a known limitation
and I have an open support case with Red Hat to confirm this.
My workaround is to configure the URL paths from the
wsgi.py file in the root
directory. For example
diff --git a/wsgi.py b/wsgi.py index c443581..20e2bf5 100644 --- a/wsgi.py +++ b/wsgi.py @@ -12,7 +12,12 @@ except IOError: # line, it's possible required libraries won't be in your searchable path # +from github_bugzilla_hook import wsgi as ghbzh + def application(environ, start_response): + # custom paths + if environ['PATH_INFO'] == '/github-bugzilla-hook/': + return ghbzh.application(environ, start_response) ctype = 'text/plain' if environ['PATH_INFO'] == '/health':
This does the job and is almost the same as configuring the path in
I hope it helps you!
