Daemonizing a tornado app

This post is more a note for myself than anything else, but I wrote it here as it can also be useful for you. It explains how to daemonize a tornado application in three easy steps:

  1. Install python-daemon

  2. Add this import line at the beginning of

import daemon
  1. Add these 3 lines in the main() function, just before the tornado.ioloop.IOLoop.instance().start():
log = open('tornado.' + str(port) + '.log', 'a+')
ctx = daemon.DaemonContext(stdout=log, stderr=log,  working_directory='.')

That's all folks.
