What do you know about Django?
What do you know about Django?
Django is a popular and high-level Python web framework that allows rapid development of secure and maintainable websites. Built by skilled developers, Django takes care of much of the hassle of web development, so you can focus on writing your app without needing to reinvent the wheel. It is free and open source, has a flourishing and active community, great documentation, and many options for free and paid-for support.
At initial phases, Django practiced for developing and maintaining the news websites, after developing the number of websites, developers observed that common code for multiple functions, This common code emerged into a generic web development framework, which was open-sourced as the “Django” project in the mid of 2005. Django mainly focuses on Rapid development, Collaboration, maintainability, and code reusability.
What Makes Django So special from others?
Up to date Documentation
Django’s documentation is far above the normal standard of any open-source projects, and it has been updated over time. The excellence in the documentation of its features set the Django apart from others. Most of the frameworks practice an alphabetical list of modules and all the methods and traits. This alphabetical method serves well for quick references. Django’s documentation features aren’t unique anymore, but it’s still one of the best examples of open source documentation among others.
Django is a complete package that provides almost everything that developers require to create web applications, so developers need to think about the “out of the box.” Django works and follows consistent design principles together seamlessly. And its extensive documentation helps to refer and find quickly where you’re at in the framework.
The versatile feature of the Django allows the developers to build any type of websites like content management systems for social and news websites. It can work with any client-side framework to deliver the content in almost all formats including (HTML, RSS feeds, JSON, XML, etc).
Another greatest feature of the Django is the ability to choose a choice for any feature or functionality( Databases and template engines etc.) you wish. It can also be extended if needed.
Django is a popular Python web framework. So it provides the ability to write and run on multiple platforms. That means it will not restrict to particular server platform and can run your applications on multiple flavors(Linux, Windows, and Mac OS). Besides, Django is extremely supported by several web hosting providers, who often provide specific infrastructure and documentation for hosting Django sites.
Django practices component-based “shared nothing” architecture. Having clear embarkation between the different parts means that it can ascend for increased traffic by adding hardware at any level: caching servers, database servers, or application servers. Some of the busiest sites (Instagram) have successfully scaled Django to match their demands.
Great ORM (object-relation mapper) features of Django allows greater flexibility within the application. With Django, changing from one database to another is as easy as altering a configuration file, whereas in another framework like PHP switching from one to another requires huge efforts.
Django’s admin interface is most unique and attractive. With Django, it is easy to produce an administration site directly from an application’s models.
Notable Features of Django:
- An extensible authentication system
- Able to practice several caching methods
- In Django, you can translate the core components into multiple languages.
- Django’s serialization system can produce and read XML and/or JSON representations of Django model instances
- Extending capabilities of the template engine
- Tools for generating google sitemaps, RSS, and Atom syndication feeds
- Creation of GIS Apps
- Serialization of Data
- Robust user authentication and permissions
Django is the perfect choice for building performant web apps that are easy to maintain. Handy features of bundled middleware help to build web apps in an efficient manner that capable of handling huge traffic. The popular giants (Nasa, Reddit, Washington Post) in the market are using it. It’s also a great choice for a company starting many web application projects as it saves lots of ramp-up time for the developer.
