* WE ARE MOVING TO GITHUB, UPDATED DOCS ARE ON READTHEDOCS.ORG *
The uWSGI project aims at developing a full stack for building hosting services.
Application servers (for various programming languages and protocols), proxies, process managers and monitors are all implemented using a common api and a common configuration style.
Thanks to its pluggable architecture it can be extended to support more platforms and languages.
Currently, you can write plugins in C, C++ and Objective-C.
The "WSGI" part in the name is a tribute to the namesake Python standard, as it has been the first developed plugin for the project.
Versatility, performance, low-resource usage and reliability are the strengths of the project (and the only rules followed).
See the following table for a list of current language plugins:
|Technology||Available from version||Notes||Status|
|Python||0.9.1||The first available plugin, supports WSGI (PEP333, PEP3333), Web3 from version 0.9.7-dev and Pump (from 0.9.8.4). Works with VirtualEnv, Multiple Python interpreters, Python3k and has unique features like module aliasing, DynamicVirtualenv and uGreen. A module exporting handy Decorators for the uWSGI api is available in the source distribution. PyPy support is available starting from 1.2. From 1.3 the Tracebacker has been added||Stable (100% uwsgi api support)|
|Lua||0.9.5||Support wsapi, coroutine and threads||Stable (60% uwsgi api support)|
|Perl||0.9.5||PSGI support. multiple interpreters, threading and async modes supported||Stable (60% uwsgi api support)|
|Ruby||0.9.7-dev||Rack and RubyOnRails support. A loop engine for Ruby 1.9 fibers is available as well as a handy DSL module||stable (80% uwsgi api support)|
|Erlang||0.9.5||allows message exchanging between uWSGI and Erlang nodes. ErlangIntegration||Stable (no uwsgi api support)|
|CGI||1.0-dev||run CGI scripts||Stable (no uwsgi api support)|
|PHP||1.0-dev||run PHP scripts||stable from 1.1 (5% uwsgi api support)|
|Go||1.4||run Go application||stable from (20% uwsgi api support)|
|JVM||1.9-dev||allows integration between uWSGI and the JVM. An example WSGI-like (jwsgi) handler is available||Stable|
|mono||1.9-dev||allows running Mono ASP.NET applications||Stable|

Donate (if you want)
Even if the uWSGI development is sponsored by a company (Unbit) and its customers, and you can buy commercial support and licensing, you may want to support it in a less bureaucratic way. If you are not an Unbit customer, or you cannot/donotwant to buy a commercial license consider making a donation. Obviously, feel free to ask for new features in your donation. We will give credits to everyone will want to sponsor new features.
