Gunicorn ‘Green Unicorn’ is a WSGI HTTP Server for UNIX. It’s a pre-fork worker model ported from Ruby’s Unicorn project. It supports both eventlet and greenlet.
export ASSEMBLY_APP=default export ASSEMBLY_ENV=Production gunicorn -w 4 wsgi:app
uWSGI is a fast application server written in C. It is very configurable which makes it more complicated to setup than gunicorn.
export ASSEMBLY_APP=default export ASSEMBLY_ENV=Production uwsgi --http 127.0.0.1:5000 --module wsgi:app
Set the environment variables for Heroku
heroku config:set ASSEMBLY_ENV=Production heroku config:set ASSEMBLY_APP=default
web: gunicorn wsgi:app release: asm gen:sync-models; asm setup
Unlike Gunicorn and uWSGI, Boxie gives you something more like a PaaS (Platform as a Service) option. If you manage your own server, we recommend Boxie and you will love it :).
Boxie is a utility to install on a host machine, that allows you to deploy multiple sites or apps, run scripts and background workers on a single VPS, Digital Ocean or Linode instance.
Boxie follows a process similar to Heroku or Dokku where you push code to the host via Git, and Boxie will: - create an instance on the host machine - deploy the new code - create virtual environments for your application - get a free SSL from LetsEncrypt and assign it to your domain - execute scripts to be executed - put your application online - monitor the application - restart the application if it crashes

Boxie configuration is already shipped with Assembly, with
boxie.yml is a manifest format for describing apps. It declares environment variables, scripts, and other information required to run an app on your server.
