Django – Web Framework for Perfectionists with Deadlines

Posted · Category: BSD License, Framework

Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design. Developed and used over two years by a fast-moving online-news operation, Django was designed to handle two challenges: the intensive deadlines of a newsroom and the stringent requirements of the experienced Web developers who wrote it. It lets you build high-performing, elegant Web applications quickly. Django focuses on automating as much as possible and adhering to the DRY principle. It has the following main features.

Object-relational mapper
Define your data models entirely in Python. You get a rich, dynamic database-access API for free — but you can still write SQL if needed.

Automatic admin interface
Save yourself the tedious work of creating interfaces for people to add and update content. Django does that automatically, and it’s production-ready.

Elegant URL design
Design pretty, cruft-free URLs with no framework-specific limitations. Be as flexible as you like.

Template system
Use Django’s powerful, extensible and designer-friendly template language to separate design, content and Python code.

Cache system
Hook into memcached or other cache frameworks for super performance — caching is as granular as you need.

Internationalization
Django has full support for multi-language applications, letting you specify translation strings and providing hooks for language-specific functionality.

    I work for a place that tried Django and its near impossible to find developers who work in it. So if you are not a developer yourself, avoid it like the plague.

    There is very active and pretty big community of developers who use Django. It is hard to believe you was unable to find one. Visit oDesk.com.
