ASGI (Asynchronous Server Gateway Interface) is a spiritual successor to WSGI, intended to provide a standard interface between async-capable Python web servers, frameworks, and applications.
Where WSGI provided a standard for synchronous Python apps, ASGI provides one for both asynchronous and synchronous apps, with a WSGI backwards-compatibility implementation and multiple servers and application frameworks.
You can read more in the :doc:`introduction <introduction>` to ASGI, look through the :doc:`specifications <specs/index>`, and see what :doc:`implementations <implementations>` there already are or that are upcoming.
Contribution and discussion about ASGI is welcome, and mostly happens on the asgiref GitHub repository.
