uWSGI will run as a non-privileged user so you can run it as yourself
and point it to the application. Serve on a port higher than 1024 and
there's no reason you need root-level privileges [1]:

uwsgi --http :9090 --wsgi-file foobar.py

Python even has its own built-in web server, `python -m http.server` if
you want to play with serving HTML etc. [2]

It's obviously not how you would do it in production, but for a quick
test or local development it seems like the easiest solution.
