  Description     : Django middleware to compress responses using several algorithms

  This middleware implements compressed content encoding for HTTP. It is
  similar to Django's GZipMiddleware, but additionally supports other
  compression methods. It is meant to be a drop-in replacement for Django's

  The middleware is focussed on the task of compressing typical Django
  responses such as HTML, JSON, etc.  Both normal (bulk) and streaming
  responses are supported. For static file compression, have a look at other
  projects such as WhiteNoise.

  Zstandard is a new method for compression with little client support so far.
  Most browsers now support Brotli compression. The middleware will choose the
  best compression method supported by the client as indicated in the
  request's Accept-Encoding header.

I plan to maintain this package as part of the Python team.
