>>> help(wsgiref.simple_server.WSGIServer.serve_foreve r)

Help on method serve_forever in module SocketServer:

serve_forever(self, poll_interval=0.5) unbound
wsgiref.simple_server.WSGIServer method
Handle one request at a time until shutdown.

Polls for shutdown every poll_interval seconds. Ignores
self.timeout. If you need to do periodic tasks, do them in
another thread.

>>> help(wsgiref.simple_server.WSGIServer.shutdown)

Help on method shutdown in module SocketServer:

shutdown(self) unbound wsgiref.simple_server.WSGIServer method
Stops the serve_forever loop.

Blocks until the loop has finished. This must be called while
serve_forever() is running in another thread, or it will

Did you try:

>>> import threading
>>> threading.Thread(target=httpd.shutdown).start()
