Most developers now use existing  Web Frameworks and few (really rarely any) develop from scratch.  But would it not be excellent to be able to develop your own web framework w/ SSL support native.  There is scant documentation on the wsgiserver, but these work!

Template code:

import wsgiserver

page = '<!DOCTYPE html><html><body><a href=>This is a link</a></body></html>'

def my_app(environ, start_response):
    status = '200 OK'
    response_headers = [('Content-type', 'text/html; charset=utf-8')]
    start_response(status, response_headers)
    return [page.encode('utf-8')]

server = wsgiserver.WSGIServer(my_app, host='', port=8080)

One can easily add SSL by simply:

server = wsgiserver.WSGIServer(my_app, certfile='cert.pem', keyfile='privkey.pem')

No matter what one types it will serve the page!
