Brings event-driven capabilities to Django with a channel system. Django 1.7 and up only.
NOTE: The current master branch is in flux as it changes to match the final structure and the new ASGI spec. If you wish to use this in the meantime, please use a tagged release.
This is a work-in-progress code branch of Django implemented as a third-party app, which aims to bring some asynchrony to Django and expand the options for code beyond the request-response model, in particular enabling WebSocket, HTTP2 push, and background task support.
This is still beta software: the API is mostly settled, but might change a bit as things develop.
Documentation, installation and getting started instructions are at http://channels.readthedocs.org
You can also install channels from PyPI as the channels package. You’ll likely also want asgi_redis to provide the Redis channel layer.
