Middleware that compresses response using brotli algorithm.

Project description

PyPi MIT TravisCI Coverage Updates Supported Python implementations Supported Python versions


This project consists of BrotliMiddleware which works the same as Django GZipMiddleware (Docs/Source). BrotliMiddleware will compress content of HTTP response using brotli algorithm (Brotli Compressed Data Format is defined in RFC 7932).

In November 2016 is brotli supported by Firefox, Chrome, Android Browser and Opera (detailed stats on caniuse). Brotli is applied only when client has sent Accept-Encoding header containing br.
