django-websockets-redis is a popular library to use websockets and Django. However the LiveServerTestCase does not work with it because it is single threaded.

In their doc (

Currently it is not possible to simulate more than one client at a time. Django’s built in LiveServerTestCase can not handle more than one simultaneous open connection, and thus more sophisticated tests with more than one active Websockets are not possible.

We should make that possible and handle simultaneous open connections

I believe this was previously wontfixed in #20238 as there wasn't sufficient justification at the time. Maybe things have changed since then, but as long as Django itself doesn't use the functionality, I'm unsure why this couldn't live in the third-party library. Any idea how complex the patch would be?
