Run Python with Forever

By | Linux | No Comments

It is easy to use Python with forever.js:

forever start -c python

To use it with virtualenv is a little bit more complicated, I did it using a bash script (call it python_virtualenv):

# Script to run a Python file using the local virtualenv
source bin/activate
bin/python $@

Now use that script with forever:

forever start -c ./python_virtualenv
