What is django-omnibus
django-omnibus is a Django library which helps to create websocket-based connections between a browser and a server to deliver messages.
Some use cases could be:
- Chat systems
- Realtime stream updates
- Inter-browser communication
- file transfers
- and so on..
django-omnibus is quite extensible. The connection handler, the Tornado web application and the authenticator can be replaced by just changing a setting.
For browser compatibility django-omnibus also supports SockJS (which provides fallbacks for older browsers).
On the client side, django-omnibus provides a library which handles the connection, authentication and channel subscription (multiple channels can be subscribed using one connection).
