Why Django is the best Python Framework

Django a python framework

At the beginning of a project, choosing a language is crucial. Instead of choosing a language that you are familiar with, you should evaluate and decide what suits your project the most. You also need to identify your goals and what you prioritize: Fast development, security, scalability, or support from a big community. BHSOFT can help you with that whole lot of work. Our experienced team can help you develop your project based on your exact requirements. 

After years of experience with a diversity of technologies, we have found that Django is one of the best frameworks which suits both mobile and web development.  

Django is a high-level Python framework that was created in 2005. Since then, Django has gained significant popularity and become one of the fastest-growing web frameworks with a large developer community. Django helps to boost faster web development with the right functionalities and clean code. 

Why Django?

 

Fast development

Django was made to accelerate the development process. Django debug toolbar provides developers with an insight into your code. For instance, it shows how much time you have spent on doing each task. It also shows all SQL queries your page is generating, as well as how long each one has taken.

High security

Django helps developers avoid the most common security mistakes, such as:

  • Cross-site scripting (XSS) 
  • Cross-site request forgery (CSRF) 
  • SQL injection 
  • Clickjacking
  • Safe password harsh

Django hides your website source code. The framework also releases security patches regularly and alerts other frameworks when encountering new security threats. 

Open-source

Django is open source with a thriving community, great documentation, and a lot of free support. 

Scalability

Django was designed to utilize all the hardware it is given. Developers can add hardware at any level – database servers, caching servers, or Web/application servers. The framework also separates components such as its database layer and application layer. 

Django has a powerful cache framework

Django is super flexible. The framework allows developers to perform highly effective tasks such as running separate servers for the database, the media, and the application itself or even using clustering or load-balancing to distribute the application across multiple servers.

The fact that it is Python

Django the python framework is of course written in Python, which allows developers to manage projects with fewer lines of code. Since Python is simple to learn, thus, it is also easier to find developers. It also helps to simplify the process of training newbies.

Python gets along well with other languages. Developing with Python does not mean that you have to stick with everything that’s built with Python only. Besides having access to a huge PyPI library, you may access libraries built with many other languages, including C/C++/Java.

Batteries included

‘Batteries included’ means Django comes with most of the libraries and tools for most common use cases, such as Django ORM, Middlewares, Authentication, HTTP libraries, Multi-site support, i18n, Django Admin, template engine, etc. 

Django ORM

Django ORM is very well built. With Django, it is much easier to modify the queries than with raw SQL. Besides, Django ORM is packed with a diversity of built-in tools which help speed up the development process. You get the whole Django infrastructure to your own benefits, including Django Forms, Django Generic Views, serializer, and a lot of 3rd party apps.

When to use and when not to use Django?

Django is suitable for these situations

  • You are developing a web application or API backend.
  • Your project is time-limited, you need to build fast, deploy fast and make changes at the same time.
  • Your app requires high security, safe from vulnerabilities and attacks by default. For example CSRF, SQL Injection, XSS, Clickjacking, etc.
  • Your app requires high flexibility and scalability.  Your app needs to scale up and down at any time.
  • You need both web app and API backend in the same codebase.
  • You need ORM support.
  • You are a fan of Open Source.

When not to use Django the python framew

  • Your app size is too huge for one single codebase. 
  • Your app is not so complex and doesn’t require database or file operation.
  • Your app is built from scratch and you have a clear plan on how to build it.
  • You need a quick team, quick development. You don’t have enough time to gather all the required skills. Django is easy to catch up with.

At BHSOFT, you can handpick your teams. We will present to you the best candidates at the very beginning of the project as well as give you advice on which technologies suit you the best.
