What about serving large files given file(-like) handler? It could be
very beneficial sometimes, especially with dynamically generated
Does Zope has anything for this?
Thank you for any ideas on this topic!
Have a look at:
it implements what you are asking for.
Thank you for the link, however, it seems that it is not what I am looking
for. I do not want the file contents be read into Python program as a
whole but piped to the HTTP client. This piece of FileCacheManager code
give me doubts that this is how it works:
cache_entry = FileCacheEntry(self, ob, fname, self._tempfile_path)
I want something which works similar to Unix pipe but for HTTP client:
this_generates_output | process_output >> http_client
I do not want to store it anywhere on the FS and/or ZODB! And I certainly
do not want to read the resulting file as a Python string into RAM. So,
I cant understand how RAMCache or FILECacheManager is going to help me.
I don't know if writing to response one chunk at a time is proper
solution? Will Zope store response body or sent it right away? I am not
sure that it is the later...
It sounds like you are looking for a streaming type of solution. You can
google zope and streaming to get more info.
