PyPI Changelog Tests License

Run a Datasette server using Gunicorn

Installation

Install this plugin in the same environment as Datasette.

datasette install datasette-gunicorn

Usage

The plugin adds a new datasette gunicorn command. This takes most of the same options as datasette serve, plus one more option for setting the number of Gunicorn workers to start:

-w/--workers X - set the number of workers. Defaults to 1.

To start serving a database using 4 workers, run the following:

datasette gunicorn fixtures.db -w 4

It is advisable to switch your datasette into WAL mode to get the best performance out of this configuration:

sqlite3 fixtures.db 'PRAGMA journal_mode=WAL;'

Run datasette gunicorn --help for a full list of options (which are the same as datasette serve --help, with the addition of the new -w option).

datasette gunicorn --help

Not all of the options to datasette serve are supported. Here's the full list of available options:

                            allowed. Use 0.0.0.0 to listen to all IPs and allow
                            access from other machines.
  -p, --port INTEGER RANGE  Port for server, defaults to 8001. Use -p 0 to
                            automatically assign an available port.

Development

To set up this plugin locally, first checkout the code. Then create a new virtual environment:

cd datasette-gunicorn
python3 -m venv venv
source venv/bin/activate

Now install the dependencies and test dependencies:

pip install -e '.[test]'

To run the tests:
