I've been waiting on the OpenShift team to crack the WebSocket nut for a while and they finally got it back in December. To try it out, I tried to set up the Moksha Demo Dashboard on two different gears.
It wasn't too tricky. I created two OpenShift "DIY"-type apps, one for the WSGI app and another for the WebSocket server (the moksha-hub). All the work in those two repos is done in the .openshift/action_hooks directories (the code is actually just installed from PyPI). Additionally, the diy/development.ini files hold all the configuration.
