django-gevent-socketio-redis-chat-example

This is an example of using django and gevent-socketio to build a chat application using redis as the backend.

Installation

Note: you probably want to create and activate a virtualenv before installing the requirements below. I use and like virtualenvwrapper.

git clone git://github.com/rlr/django-gevent-socketio-redis-chat-example.git
cd django-gevent-socketio-redis-chat-example
pip install -r requirements.txt

Running

Start the gevent socketio server:

cd chatproject
./manage.py run_gevent 9000

Then point your browser to http://localhost:9000/.

Bugs

  • I have noticed weird things happen in cases where multiple clients are connecting at same time. Race conditions?

TODO/Wishlist

  • Connected users list
  • Chat rooms
  • Private/1:1 chat
  • Experiment posting messages outside of socket.io connection. This way we can limit the socket.io connection to pubsub messages and all blocking calls (to database, etc.) can be made through the normal django/wsgi stack.
