Django Channels


Channels loads into Django as a pluggable app to bring WebSocket, long-poll HTTP, task offloading and other asynchrony support to your code, using familiar Django design patterns and a flexible underlying framework that lets you not only customize behaviours but also write support for your own protocols and needs.

This is still beta software: the API is mostly settled, but might change a bit as things develop. Once we hit 1.0, it will be stablized and a deprecation policy will come in.

Documentation, installation and getting started instructions are at http://channels.readthedocs.org

Support can be obtained either here via issues, or in the #django-channels channel on Freenode.

You can install channels from PyPI as the channels package. You'll likely also want to asgi_redis to provide the Redis channel layer. See our installation and getting started docs for more.
