Django is an open source framework for web applications written in the Python programming language. A framework represents a kind of building block system that comes with a variety of pre-built parts, making web app development much easier.

Why do you need a framework?

[/su_list] It was realized a long time ago that web developers are confronted with the same requirements over and over again. In order to be able to implement these requirements quickly and easily, the first frameworks were created. Frameworks are primarily there to avoid having to reinvent the wheel. One can take care of the concrete requirements to be fulfilled, while the framework provides the basic foundation of the web application.

What makes Django so good?

Probably the biggest difference to other frameworks, such as Ruby on Rails or Laravel, is the URL design. With Django, URLs don’t have to be explicitly specified and are also not created using an automated principle. While this takes some getting used to at first, it gives Django an extended modularity that not many web frameworks can boast. The created modules are completely separated from the logic of the main application and can be integrated into the web app at any time by an include statement, similar to traditional programming languages (C, C++, Java).
