Django/JavaScript WebSocket Connections

Project Description

# django-omnibus

Django/JavaScript WebSocket Connections.

[![Coverage Status](]( [![Travis Status](](

## What is django-omnibus

django-omnibus is a Django library which helps to create websocket-based connections between a browser and a server to deliver messages.

Some use cases could be:

  • Chat systems
  • Realtime stream updates
  • Inter-browser communication
  • file transfers
  • and so on..

django-omnibus is quite extensible. The connection handler, the Tornado web application and the authenticator can be replaced by just changing a setting.

For browser compatibility django-omnibus also supports [SockJS]( (which provides fallbacks for older browsers).

On the client side, django-omnibus provides a library which handles the connection, authentication and channel subscription (multiple channels can be subscribed using one connection).

## Installation & Documentation

All documentation is in the “docs/source” directory and online at [Read the Docs](
