Django Review

July 19, 2017, 8:29 p.m.

I somewhat review Django.


Now that imglnx is released I can finally talk about Django since I've used it in a proper project now.

 

Docs

Django's documentation is some of the best that I've ever seen while doing software development. They go in great detail and even have some quick tutorials.

Security

Out of the box Django adds protection for multiple things. I remember the days of writing PHP and using PDO - but then even having to write a simple wrapper to handle sanitation before even sending to my PDO query. With Django you don't have to do that at all. Just allow anything in the DB and make sure you don't mark stuff safe in your template.

Python

It's written in Python!

API

As mentioned above about their docs, the API is just great. It's easy to do things. If you want to get data from a query then go do that - it's very easy.
