mod_wsgi is an Apache module which “can host any Python application which supports the Python WSGI interface”. Litespeed has no lsapi-wsgi yet at the time being(lsws 4.0.12), however, if an Python app running under apache with mod_wsgi, it can run under litespeed too through wsgi-ajp.

the "Hello world" app


def application(environ, start_response):
  status = '200 OK'
  output = 'Hello World!'
  response_headers = [('Content-type', 'text/plain'),
                      ('Content-Length', str(len(output)))]
  start_response(status, response_headers)
  return [output]
