Flask on Elastic Beanstalk

I had a play with Elastic Beanstalk the other day. It’s one of those things people turn their noses up at, but it seems pretty good for prototyping and small things. My biggest issue so far has been that, for Python applications, it expects a WSGI callable called application in the file application.py… but I was using Flask, and every single Flask application ever has a WSGI callable called app in the file app.py. I tried to not care, but it got too much after about an hour so I went and found how to override it:

$ cat .ebextensions/01_wsgi.config
    WSGIPath: "app:app"

Thank you Nik Tomazic for that! (=⌒‿‿⌒=)
