While there is no direct support for Async views currently, it is possible to create a view which would support async components.

Demo Dashboard

You first need a to create your own Async compatible component view, for example from our demo (TODO LINK) we have:

import asyncio

from django.http import HttpRequest, HttpResponse
from django.utils.decorators import classonlymethod

import httpx

from dashboards.views import ComponentView

class AsyncComponentView(ComponentView):
    def as_view(cls, **initkwargs):
        Needed prior to 4.1 for CBV
        view = super().as_view(**initkwargs)
        view._is_coroutine = asyncio.coroutines._is_coroutine
        return view

    async def get(self, request: HttpRequest, *args, **kwargs):
        async with httpx.AsyncClient() as client:
            status = ["200", "302", "400", "404", "500"]
            responses = await asyncio.gather(
                *[client.get(f"https://httpbin.org/status/{s}") for s in status]

        return HttpResponse(
            "Async<br/>" + "<hr/>".join([str(r.status_code) for r in responses])

    async def post(self, *args, **kwargs):
        return self.get(*args, **kwargs)

In this case, the view simply returns an async fetch of some httpbin responses.

In your urls.py you can now add the async component, the path can be anything as can the reverse name, but the url must append COMPONENT_PATTERN.

# urls.py
from django.urls import path

from .views import AsyncComponentView

from dashboards.urls import COMPONENT_PATTERN

urlpatterns = [
        "asynccomponent/" + COMPONENT_PATTERN,

You can now point a component to the alternate async component view by setting an alternate defer_url on any component:

# views.py
from django.urls import reverse

from dashboards.component import Text
from dashboards.dashboard import Dashboard

class AsyncComponentDashboard(Dashboard):
    async_httpbin = Text(
        defer_url=lambda reverse_args: reverse(
            "async-component", args=reverse_args

You can also mix and match with standard component defers in once dashboard.
