Application frameworks

The Python agent is meant to be WSGI compatible. It may be compatible to other WSGI applications as long as the guidelines are followed.

The Agent is also ASGI compatible for the FastAPI framework only.

* FastAPI and Starlette (on which FastAPI depends) are relatively new libraries that are undergoing continuous development changes which may break Contrast support. FastAPI states that development moves quickly. Contrast will maintain support up to the stated version and update documentation when new support is released.

Processor architecture

The agent is tested on x86_64

It may work on other architectures but it isn't officially supported.

Web servers

Databases
