What is Django not good for?

Hi, I'm a couple months into Django and it is my first step into web development, and I was wondering what (kinds of websites?) is Django not so good for? If you could briefly explain why, and also what an alternative to Django might be in that instance that would be great. Thanks!

The Django Tutorial: Dated and Confusing?

Hello Django Community! I'm curious to hear from Django users (experienced and new) in regards to your experience working through the tutorial, and then moving on to building your own project.

I've heard some people claim that the tutorial is "simple, straightforward, and all you need" to get running with Django. I've heard other say they were just as confused (or more so) after doing the tutorial as they were before doing it.

For me, I didn't fully understand Django until I learned Flask. Flask started at ground zero: a hello-world application. In 7 lines of code and two terminal commands a new user can have an application up and running. There's no discussion of ports, databases, or assumption that Flask is installed already. It takes a total noob, gets them up and running, and then starts things off in an easy-to-read format. There's even a separate forward for experienced programmers.

Once I had deployed a Flask project and tried Django again, I finally understood what was actually going on in Django (and its strong points). Now, after using both for many projects (both large and small), I thought I'd ask: Do you think the Django tutorial needs a rewrite? If so, what would you do to change it? I'm also curious to know what your experience with web development, python development, and MVC was before you started learning Django.

My opinion: The Django Documentation direly needs an overhaul to appeal to the MVC/MTV/Python framework noob. It simply introduces too much, too fast. Sure, the Admin is cool...but does it belong in the tutorial? Sure, a HUGE part of Django is the ORM/models...but do we really need to start talking about databases before introducing other parts of the framework?

On page one of the tutorial, the new user is instantly hit with Database setup, creating models, migrations, and the python shell. On page two, we completely switch gears and play with the admin. Finally, on page 3, we talk about views and actually displaying our own content on the front-end. It's true, Django is a HUGE framework when compared to Flask. But is it really appropriate to drown the new user in so much, so quickly?

I just jumped ship from tastypie to django-rest-framework and its a case of I didn't know what I was missing.

The title says it all. How many of you have had the same experience? Until this morning I had been using various fixes to get tastypie to work on django 1.7, merging in fixes into my own repo. Today started a new project and git checkout of tastypie still showed it wasn't ready for 1.7 so installed Django Rest Framework, quickly followed the tutorial to get familiar and after 2 hours I started porting my previous project to it and I was literally blown away by how well designed it is compared to Tastypie.

Lets just dream Django 2.0

This post is more for a little fun than anything else. The idea behind it is you create your wish list of features for Django 2.0 it can be as sensible or far out as you like.

Personally I would love to see complete support for nosql (kind of speaks for it self) I would also love to see a full wsgi server built into django something like gunicorn by default so deployment becomes a breeze (not that its really hard at the moment).

You have all been a huge help to me in my Django journey, so I thought I'd share what you helped build

Around 13 months ago, I decide to learn Python and Django so I could start building some website ideas I had. Previously, I just knew HTML and CSS and was using the ExpressionEngine CMS to build sites. It served the purpose and was good enough I guess, but I couldn't customize anything as I didn't know PHP. I wanted to be able to make changes to the way the site worked so it would do what i wanted and not have to bend around what the CMS could do. So... after 13 months of work learning Python and Django well enough to feel like I could start on this site, I dove in and with a lot of help from you folks here, I've launched:

It's a site where golf addicts like myself can signup, share, discover and discuss all things golf. Aside from being able to post links (the site uses beautifulsoup to scrape the url and return data), members can follow each other, favorite links, like links, report links, comment, and like comments. I built a basic reputation system into it that keeps track of points when each users does something on the site, i.e., submits a link or comments.

Some apps I used:

Thanks for looking!

Django VS. .NET

Hi, my client is asking me why we chose Django for his project and why it was a better choice against .NET I don't know .NET, can you help me explain why (and if) Django was actually a better choice than .NET for their website? Can you post some "literature" about the argument? To better understand the project, consider it is a custom CMS, totally built on AJAX requests.

[Ask r/Django] What are your favourite extensions?

Django beginner here. I'm finally underway on a large-scale web app that I'm hoping will change the world and put me on the path towards Django mastery.

In my travels I've come across a bunch of cool Django extensions that I know everyone here is aware of. As I'm still a baby, here's my short list so far.

Please submit your life in the form <pip name>: <why someone would use it>

  • django-grappelli: Provides a much prettier looking Admin interface, retard-proof installation

  • south: Database Migrations, makes life WAY easier when changing models after syncdb

  • django-debug-toolbar: Gives you a running toolbar on all your pages when in development showing static contents, templates, context and a variety of other really cool things. Removes the need to debug from terminal.

I'm curious to see what some of you guys swear by

Django Unchained. Dr. King Schultz being a Dentist explained.

In Django, one of our heros Christopher Walt'z' Dr. King Schultz at one point was a Dentist-which seems like a strange offbeat choice to have a character have that as an occupation at first. Dig a little deeper and start looking at the naming conventions of the film.

You have Dr. King Schultz, a third party outsider who's current job is to thwart the evils at hand and the spreading issue of racism and slavery running rampant throughout the south.

Fine- he used to be a Dentist- whatever- this is Tarantino right? He's wrought with quirky decision making.

But then take a look at who he's first hunting; The Brittle Brothers. Aside from a few things, the only thing that comes to mind when I hear the word Brittle is sweet sugary Brittle Candy- as in Peanut Brittle and Caramel brittle, all syrup cooked to sweet perfection. He finds and eradicates them with the help of freed slave Django, only to name his next target; Calvin Candie- owner of "Candie Land" In short- the south is an invented cavity laden cesspool. The infection of slavery is growing and Dr. King Schultz is the living remedy.

Not to mention to one look at Calvin Candie and you see-maybe more than anyone-is in need of a Dentist. He sucks down Coconut juice- pure, cavities causing straight cane sugar. So in context you see, He IS the cavity and Dr. Schultz is there to to eradicate him.

Tarantino uses the so-good but-so-bad for you analogy of candy as the infected spreading epidemic of slavery and racism in the south to highlight it's need to be stopped.

What can't django do?

A lot of the django reviews I read say that django can do a lot but when you need to do something it wasn't designed for then there's a lot of jumping through hoops.

Can someone provide examples? I'm in the process of picking a framework to work and that idea scares me a bit. Right now it's django vs flask vs pyramid

reddit, what is your favorite editor for Django projects?

Please specify operating system, software, price, addons etc. I'm having problem finding a texteditor for my OSX which has the correct markup. Which one do you use?

EDIT: Thanks for replies, didn't expect that much activity. I see there are a lot of diffrent editors currently in use by us Django developers. I'll try to tl;dr the comments:

The Onion Uses Django, And Why It Matters To Us

We wanted to post earlier why we like/use Django, but, we get pretty busy around here, so a bit late. Sorry if this is duping any existing threads.


This is not a Drupal vs Django fight, we're not here to slag Drupal, Drupal has been important to The Onion, but The Onion decided to stop using Drupal a long time ago. The Onion deployed a Drupal site back in 2005, at the time it was the right decision given the resources, yet even then we were interested in using Python whenever possible. We feel it is a vastly better designed language than PHP and of course any framework you're using is only as good as the language. We started rolling out other projects, like The A.V. Club, in Django. Just this past weekend we switched over The Onion proper, and we're seeing immediate gains in speed, maintainability, and stability. As a team we have a pretty broad base of experience and I know we're all in agreement that what we've got now is better, enormously better. We're not just using Django, we have some other pieces that made our lives easier: git, PostgreSQL, VPS's. So this isn't just about The Onion using Django (and recommending it), but generally that you can make things better by investing time and energy into new technology.


It took us about 3 months to convert our old Onion site to Django while we also maintained and built on our other sites. We already had some components written for A.V. Club, including a strong article and image model, so we felt we could concentrate on coming up with good models that covered the necessary editorial cases. The hard part was more how to fit pieces of content from ten years ago consistently and cleanly than it was writing the code to make use of the final model. We broke out templates into nicely reusable components and made use of the Django template hierarchy. Multi-db made the conversion of data from a MySQL db to the PostgreSQL db fairly easy, so we could rerun importing old data into the new system and fix and tweak. There is an enormous advantage using Django, sorl and PIL for creating image crops based on templatetags which gives the editorial and design folk flexibility they need (no more css cropping odd-sized images into place). Again, lots of work went into actually cleaning a site that goes back to 1996, Django allowing for a relatively minimal amount of coding -- particularly when it comes to the admin side for content entry, Django trunk we found almost ready to go as-is (something we did not find with previous Django). That we could use the Django admin rather than create custom entry forms I think saved us 2 months work.


Cleaner. Much cleaner. Proper unit testing. Real reusable components across applications. An ORM rather than a just a series of functional query helpers. Tighter conventions (q: how often do people using Python argue about bracing styles? a: they don't). We can update then test a Django core change without worrying about having to take apart our applications, and if we do need to make a change, it's easy to do because there's less, much more readable code. Every member of the tech team can meaningfully contribute because there are fewer specialized or hacked together pieces. We can move more quickly on large changes because of all these reasons. And we're more stable because of all the previously expressed points.

-- The Onion Tech Team
