Django Channels work, but the performance just isn't great. It's a good fit if your app is small. If it grows you'll want to use C++, Java, Elixir or Golang (my favorite) for websockets in order to be cost effective.

What benchmarks are you using to determine the performance evaluation?

True, synchronous code running on an internal thread executor on an event loop will be slower than fully async, but still curious.

And which version of channels did you try most recently?
