How to use Django with Uvicorn

Uvicorn is an ASGI server based on uvloop and httptools, with an emphasis on speed.

Installing Uvicorn

You can install Uvicorn with pip:

python -m pip install uvicorn

Running Django in Uvicorn

When Uvicorn is installed, a uvicorn command is available which runs ASGI applications. Uvicorn needs to be called with the location of a module containing a ASGI application object, followed by what the application is called (separated by a colon).

For a typical Django project, invoking Uvicorn would look like:

uvicorn myproject.asgi:application

它将开启一个进程,监听 127.0.0.1:8000。这需要你的项目位于 Python path 上。为了确保这点,你应该在与 manage.py 文件相同的路径中运行这个命令。
