Pure python web server, based on Twisted, providing the One Obvious Way to do async and offbeat network traffic with django and other WSGI apps.
*A Python web server that makes async and offbeat network traffic easy, fun, and fast.*
[![Build Status](https://travis-ci.org/hendrix/hendrix.png?branch=master)](https://travis-ci.org/hendrix/hendrix)[![Latest Docs](https://readthedocs.org/projects/hendrix/badge/?version=latest)](http://hendrix.readthedocs.org/en/latest/)
**hendrix** is a tool for handling bytes-on-the-wire to and from your python web application. In this sense, it is similar to [mod_wsgi](https://modwsgi.readthedocs.org), [uWSGI](https://uwsgi-docs.readthedocs.org), and [gunicorn](http://gunicorn-docs.readthedocs.org).
However, hendrix differs from these other technologies in that it is natively asynchronous and designed with background tasks in mind. In this sense, it may serve some projects as a replacement for [gevent](https://readthedocs.org/projects/gevent/) or [celery](http://celery.readthedocs.org).
**hendrix** implements the WSGI protocol, so it can serve applications made with django, pyramid, flask and other WSGI frameworks. However, hendrix views your web as just another network resource - in fact, this is central to the [hendrix philosophy](http://hendrix.readthedocs.org/en/latest/philosophy/).
Twisted is one of the most battle-tested and actively developed Python projects. Until hendrix, however, Twisted has not been part of a mainstream python web server. And that's a shame.
* **Multi-processing** - The WSGI app can be served from multiple
processes on a single machine.
* **Multi-threading from within your Django / Flask / Pyramid app**: Various APIs allow you to defer logic until later, place it in a different thread or process, and report back asynchronously. For example, see [crosstown_traffic](http://hendrix.readthedocs.org/en/latest/crosstown_traffic/).
* **Built-in Websockets Framework**
* **Optional Resource Caching**
* **Built-in SSL Support**: Terminate SSL inside your app if you like. Public keys can be part of your logic!
* **Daemonize** by passing the `-d` or `--daemonize` flags to `hx`
pip install hendrix
#### Running the Development Server
cd to the directory where your **manage.py** file is located and...
hx start --dev
This is roughly the equivalent of running the django devserver.
