cache_forever() None

Set the response to be cached forever by the client.

error(message: str) bytes

Begin a HTTP 500 response and return the text of a message.

class dulwich.web.LimitedInputFilter(application)

Bases: object

class dulwich.web.ServerHandlerLogger(stdin, stdout, stderr, environ, multithread=True, multiprocess=False)

Bases: wsgiref.simple_server.ServerHandler

ServerHandler that uses dulwich’s logger for logging exceptions.


Log the ‘exc_info’ tuple in the server log

Subclasses may override to retarget the output or change its format.

log_message(format, *args)
class dulwich.web.WSGIRequestHandlerLogger(request, client_address, server)

Bases: wsgiref.simple_server.WSGIRequestHandler

WSGIRequestHandler that uses dulwich’s logger for logging exceptions.


Handle a single HTTP request


Log an error.

This is called when a request cannot be fulfilled. By default it passes the message on to log_message().

Arguments are the same as for log_message().

XXX This should go to the separate error log.

log_message(format, *args)

Log an arbitrary message.

This is used by all other logging functions. Override it if you have specific logging wishes.

The first argument, FORMAT, is a format string for the message to be logged. If the format string contains any % escapes requiring parameters, they should be specified as subsequent arguments (it’s just like printf!).

The client ip and current date/time are prefixed to every message.

class dulwich.web.WSGIServerLogger(server_address, RequestHandlerClass, bind_and_activate=True)

Bases: wsgiref.simple_server.WSGIServer

Constructor. May be extended, do not override.

handle_error(request, client_address)

Handle an error.
