Application Object

There can only be one instance of a diva.core.Application per Python interpreter. That is because the application is in many places accessed via the app singleton, which provides thread-local access to the application context.

Usually a specific application will define a subclass of diva.core.Application that is explicitly instantiated at startup:

>>> from diva.core import Application
>>> class MyApp(Application):
...    pass
>>> myapp = MyApp()

After this point, you'll be able to access the singleton instance of the application using a simple import:

>>> from diva import app
>>> app
<diva.ApplicationProxy object at …>

This application proxy forwards all operations to the actual application class. The application class has a ctxt property that provides access to various thread-local objects, such as the current HTTP request.

Initialization with a Configuration File

The Application provides a convenience factory function that lets you instantiate an application using an INI-style configuration file.

For example, assume the following configuration is stored in conf/myapp.ini:

locale = en_US
timezone = UTC
doctype = html-strict
debug = true

Now you can easily instantiate your application using the configure() class method:

>>> from mypkg import MyApp
>>> myapp = MyApp.configure('conf/myapp.ini')

See ConfigOptions for information on the configuration options that are available by default, although you can of course always add your own.
