How to host Django Channels (ASGI) with DigitalOcean Apps?

I followed this official tutorial by DigitalOcean on hosting Django on Apps platform.

The REST endpoints work completely fine, but the WS endpoints aren’t even registered as WS connection attempts. When I connect to wss://, it shows

How do I get ASGI to work on DigitalOcean Apps? Are there any tutorials out there?

If it helps, here’s the Github repo.
