Websocket support for Django using Redis as datastore
Websockets for Django applications using Redis as message queue
This module implements websockets on top of Django without requiring any additional framework. For messaging it uses the [Redis](http://redis.io/) datastore and in a production environment, it is intended to work under [uWSGI](http://projects.unbit.it/uwsgi/) and behind [NGiNX](http://nginx.com/).
You can find detailed documentation on [ReadTheDocs](http://django-websocket-redis.readthedocs.org/en/latest/).
- Largely scalable for Django applications with hundreds of open websocket connections.
- Runs in a cooperative concurrency model, thus only one thread/process is simultaneously required to control all open websockets.
- Full control over the main loop during development, so Django can be started as usual with ./manage.py runserver.
- No dependencies to any other asynchronous event driven framework, such as Tornado, Flask or Node.js.
- The only additional requirement is a running instance of Redis, which by the way is a good replacement for memcached.
Currently, unit tests require a running Redis datastore, therefore they hav to run locally and can’t be deployed on Travis-CI.
