Channels in Docker example

As part of the DjangoCon Europe 2016 sprints in Budapest last weekend I wanted to get know Andrew Godwin’s Channels framework for Django a bit better especially since it might find its way into Django 1.10 and I’m in need of a Websocket-solution anyway right now 😊 Given that channels are supposed to be run using at least two distinct servers I thought it might be nice to visualise that setup using docker-compose.

You can find the result here. Right now it doesn’t do anything beyond a little hello-world, but I want to extend it with at least a tiny Websocket example in the near future. Nothing fancy, just the bare minimum πŸ˜‰
