After all, what is Django?

Used in several projects around the world, including many of the more than 800 cases that BIX Tech has already delivered, Django allows the construction of high-performance web applications that will make your business achieve surprising results. But, do you know what exactly is Django?

What is Django?

Django is an open-source full-stack web framework based on the Python language. Being characterized by being open source, the top-notch solution is free.

This framework was created to solve all the most common problems in the web application development process, such as authentication, routes, an object-relational mapper (ORM), and even migrations. Besides, it still supports scalable projects and has an efficient security system.

Django can also be used to build applications that give you a more customized experience, such as photo galleries, CRM, social networking websites, and more.

How does Django work?

First of all, it should be noted that this framework offers its website developers speed and usage of a small amount of code. But in general, projects developed with Django are usually divided into small applications consisting of a Python package. Each of these applets is based on the MVT model, or Model-View-Template, which are three aspects of web applications that Django handles. In detail, these are:

Model: the model is the structure that represents the data of this application, i.e. it has a direct connection to the database. 

View: a view is a Python function designed to receive a request and send a response in return. This fetches data and generates a response.

Templates: this is the level at which application templates are created from artifacts understood by web browsers.

Advantages of using Django in your project

Besides having a great code base that is high quality and well documented, Django presents incredible differentiators for your project. Below we separate 5 advantages of this framework for you to check out!

Complete: guided by the philosophy of batteries included, the solution is everything developers need for their project, following consistent design principles, with extensive and up-to-date documentation.

Versatile: Django can be used to build almost any type of website, from content management systems to social networks for example. By working with any framework you want for your business, the tool can deliver content in virtually any format, including HTML, JSON, XML, and similar.

Safe: helping developers avoid common security errors, Django provides a framework that automatically secures the website. For example, the solution provides a secure way to manage user accounts and passwords.

Scalable: By using a shared-nothing component-based architecture that makes each part of the architecture independent of the others, Django allows for a clear separation between the different parts. This makes it possible to scale the developed product to increase traffic by adding hardware at any level.

Sustainable: Django’s code is written using design principles and standards that encourage the creation of sustainable and reusable code. This uses the Don’t Repeat Yourself (DRY) principle that avoids unnecessary duplication, reducing the amount of code existing in the project.
