Django Channels

https://readthedocs.org/projects/channels/badge/?version=latest

Channels augments Django to bring WebSocket, long-poll HTTP, task offloading and other async 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.

Documentation, installation and getting started instructions are at https://channels.readthedocs.io

Channels is an official Django Project and as such has a deprecation policy. Details about what's deprecated or pending deprecation for each release is in the release notes.

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. See our installation and tutorial docs for more.
