Hypercorn is an ASGI web server based on the sans-io hyper, h11 , h2 , and wsproto libraries and inspired by Gunicorn. Hypercorn supports HTTP/1, HTTP/2, WebSockets (over HTTP/1 and HTTP/2), ASGI/2, and ASGI/3 specifications. Hypercorn can utilise asyncio, uvloop, or trio worker types.

Hypercorn was initially part of Quart before being separated out into a standalone ASGI server. Hypercorn forked from version 0.5.0 of Quart.


Hypercorn can be installed via pipenv or pip ,

$ pipenv install hypercorn
$ pip install hypercorn

and requires Python 3.7.0 or higher.

With hypercorn installed ASGI frameworks (or apps) can be served via Hypercorn via the command line,

$ hypercorn module:app


Hypercorn is developed on GitLab .

You are very welcome to open issues or propose merge requests .


The best way to test Hypercorn is with Tox,

$ pipenv install tox
$ tox

this will check the code style and run the tests.


The Hypercorn documentation is the best place to start, after that try opening an issue .
