    Bringing Async Capabilities to django ORM

    I'm not sure if its official. Would love some more guidance/clarity/docs/funding from the django foundation on what it looks like to migrate legacy code to the new ways.

    The rednaks repo works great for just giving the new async stuff a go. If everything else is also using async.

    I did some experimentation with this. And its a pain trying to migrate a production application that uses gevent and psycogreen2.

    The documentation on the code migration path is pretty sparse.

    The main hiccup that I ran into was psycogreen2 not being supported.

  • tortoise-orm

    Familiar asyncio ORM for python, built with relations in mind

    Thanks, it's great to see Django adding slowly but surely in all sorts of places.

    By the way, have you looked at tortoise orm, which is a fully async python ORM with very Django-like syntax? [1]


  • OPS

    OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels. Quickly and easily build and deploy open source unikernels in tens of seconds. Deploy in any language to any cloud.

  • benchmark-django-fastapi

    Some rough benchmarks of django with various configurations for WSGI / ASGI, fastapi, uvicorn

    Everything works great if everything is already using the regular threading and asyncio/async methods, or JUST gevent/psycogreen.

    The django documentation suggests mounting WSGI into ASGI.

    But, it breaks down immediately going between the two paradigms.

    I put a little experiment together a bit ago to see what would work in production, and my results.
