Asynchronous WSGI and WebSocket server based on asyncore module

Project description

This is a single-threaded asynchronous WSGI server with WebSockets support based on asyncore module. It should be compatible with Python 2.7 and 3.


from from wsgiref.simple_server import demo_app
from asyncore_wsgi import AsyncWebSocketHandler, make_server

class SimpleEchoHandler(AsyncWebSocketHandler):

    def handleMessage(self):
        print('Received WebSocket message: {}'.format(

    def handleConnected(self):
        print('WebSocket connected')

    def handleClose(self):
        print('WebSocket closed')

httpd = make_server('', 8000, demo_app, ws_handler_class=SimpleEchoHandler)

The server in the preceding example serves a demo WSGI app from the Standard Library and the echo WebSocket handler on '/ws' path.

WebSocket part was borrowed from this project.
