How to update to Channels==1.1.3 [SOLVED]

Hi, Kenneth Love !

I'm not sure what is wrong with my code..

composed json looks like this: {"1": "vacant", "2": "filled", "3": "filled"}


{% for position in project_positions %}
<td>{{  position }}</td>
<td><span class="js-{{ position.id }}">0</span></td>
{% endfor %}

<!-- jQuery (necessary for Bootstrap's JavaScript plugins) -->
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.12.4/jquery.min.js"></script>
<!-- Latest compiled and minified JavaScript -->
<script src="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.7/js/bootstrap.min.js" integrity="sha384-Tc5IQib027qvyjSMfHjOMaLkfuWVxZxUPnCJA7l2mCWNIpG9mGCD8wGNIcPD7Txa" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>

    $(document).ready(function() {
       socket = new WebSocket("ws://" + window.location.host);
       socket.onmessage = function(e) {
           var data = JSON.parse(e.data);
           for (var position in data) {
                   $(".js-"+ position).text(data[position]);

Template shows "0"s for each. Where is my mistake?

How to solve:

According to docs here:

def ws_connect(message):
    message.reply_channel.send({"accept": True})  # Add this line to get over HANDSHAKING

without that line Chrome dev tools console would show:

WebSocket connection to 'ws://' failed: Error during WebSocket handshake: net::ERR_CONNECTION_RESET

Yes, I see.) Another thing is: Channels need pypiwin32 to run on windows.

Right now deploying it on Heroku. Looking up how to set up redis backend..
