Summary0007160: confusing, required environment variable SCRIPT_NAME
DescriptionThe environment variable SCRIPT_NAME is not documented anywhere, but still required by the blog (at least until I push my commit to make it optional).

This environment variable should be documented! The name is rather confusing. It probably should be something like APP_ROOT or ROOT_URL.

And to construct paths prefixed by it, we should probably use a helper function instead of using "magic constants" everywhere!
TagsNo tags attached.

SCRIPT_NAME is part of WSGI, as documented here:
https://wsgi.readthedocs.io/en/latest/definitions.html#envvar-SCRIPT_NAME

It is the place where the X-Forwarded-Path header's value can be found by the Web application.

It can't be changed, but as of commit: 99b7904ac1258042be56bed20a80ef0c20711a27, its value gets fetched by a helper function.
