My Introduction to Django

Django is a super handy web framework built on Python. I first discovered it while looking for something compatible with the Apache2 install on my Mac.

 

At first I was only looking to make the HTML templates dynamic. Of the obvious options, It came down to PHP or Django. The deciding factor ended up being something I’d not even considered at the start: clean URLs!

 

The ease of clean URLs in Django is remarkable. Regular expressions are the name of the game.

End-to-end

My native stack is:

  • Apache
  • MySQL
  • Django
  • AngularJS
  • Arduino

Most of the necessary parts come preinstalled with OSX
