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

Moving from PHP to Django, setup & host advice?

Hello /r/django!

For years I've been building my side projects in plain PHP. However, I recently decided to learn Django after reading everywhere that it's better than PHP.
It's been only a few days since I've started learning Django, and I'm already convinced that it's awesome: clean syntax, database-abstraction API, auto-generated admin, MVC, etc.

But there are also a few things that I really have trouble with:
- Installation/setup/configuration. It took me way too long to install Python/Django, and then to understand how to deal with static files
- I can't find a host for my Django projects that is simple to use

I mean, all of this is trivial to do in PHP. Since I'm not really good at these "sysadmin tasks", I'm considering to switch back to PHP.

Any tips on how to make this less painful? Thanks!

Thanks a lot for you answers! But it just confirmed what I thought: I have to do sysadmin tasks in order to use Django properly :-/ So I'm thinking to start looking at other frameworks that are easier...

For example if I look at Meteor framework, it's incredibly simple. To install meteor, create a project, and deploy it on production, you only have to:

curl | /bin/sh
meteor create myapp
meteor deploy

Django hosting.


I'm looking at hosting a django application but I don't know where to host it. I was wondering if anyone has any good experiences with django hosting, where you hosted it and does/did it scale?

I've been looking into Elastic Beanstalk, but was wondering on people opinions? I am fairly comfortable with setting everything up myself. Just want to find a good option that isn't going to cost me a fortune, and will scale if it comes to that.

Any help is super appreciated, cheers.

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.

Are there any topics or aspects of Django that people are confused or unsure about? I'm looking for topics to write blogs posts or tutorials on.

I keep a simple blog on my portfolio site for things I come across that might be useful or confusing with Django, but I find it difficult to come up with topics as it's hard to remember what was confusing about something after you have figured out and have been familiar with Django for a while!

Are there any parts of Django that people find particularly confusing or worthy of explanation, or any other topics that people might find interesting as a blog post (or aren't fully covered by the docs etc.)?

I just saw Django unchained yesterday. I think it might be one of Tarantino's best films yet

everything about it was very well done. Spoiler. with all the action and music, I really got into it at that part. I think that is something most filmmakers are unable to achieve. I also like how Samuel Jackson's character wasn't very Sam Jackson-like. the only thing I had a problem with (and not that big of a problem with) is Spoiler edit: it may have been wrong about it being the KKK but it was the same general thing edit: everyone knows that DiCaprio cut his hand

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

What does Ruby on Rails have that Django Doesn't, and you will like! I will start

(First of all! don't make this a flamewar)

  1. I really like the assets management, all pluggable apps I found for Django are tricky or don't do all the job, it's something that you will like to have in the core of django, have preprocessors (to manage sass, or less), compilers, and minimizers for all the assets.

  2. The support for multiple template engines is transparent and easy, I really will love to use HAML in django.

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?

django vs web2py, what do you use and why?

I'm interested in trying out a python web framework and the two big ones seem to be django and web2py (or others if you prefer something else?). I'm curious what others are using and why. I did a reddit search and didn't see a recent submission regarding this, but sorry if it's a commonly asked question.

Edit: Wow... pylons, Flask, Bottle, CherryPy, Django, web2py... I should have known that there would be a flurry of different projects out there each with their own niche. I guess if you have experience with any of them post your opinions for me :)

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
