nginx config: different projects in different directories

I'm new to the list. I started to learn the Python web framework Flask
and I would like to try it in production environment too. I managed to
bring Flask together with uwsgi and nginx. My Flask application is
available at the address localhost:81 .

I would like to add several applications and I want them to be
available under different URLs. For instance, if I have two projects
called "hello" and "world", I want to access them as
localhost:81/hello/ and localhost:81/world/ . The problem is I can't
figure out how to configure nginx for this.

Here is my current setup:

* The project "hello" is in this directory: /home/jabba/public_pyapps/hello/
* Its nginx entry:

server {
    listen      81;
    server_name localhost;
    charset     utf-8;
    client_max_body_size 75M;

    location / { try_files $uri @yourapplication; }
    location @yourapplication {
        include uwsgi_params;
        uwsgi_pass unix:/home/jabba/public_pyapps/hello/hello_uwsgi.sock;

It's available at localhost:81 .


(1) How to make it available under localhost:81/hello/ instead?

(2) If I add a new application (e.g. "world") next to previous ones,
how to add it to nginx?
