If you’re looking to build a web application that will have a UI (user interface) with lots of interactive elements, Django will help you get from concept to launch faster than other frameworks. However, Django does not cover front-end development — for that you will need a complementary front-end-based framework such as react or angularjs.
Django features a model-view-template (MVT) architecture where data in an application is represented by Python objects called models and dynamically displayed using templates, which are text files that define the structure of a file or website, often with placeholders for data values. Views are responsible for processing user requests, transforming or fetching any associated data and communicating the appropriate response to the template which communicates this back to the user.
Django has a rich set of features that allow you to handle complex web applications quickly, efficiently and securely. For example, security features include a full feature set for dealing with common threats such as cross-site scripting (XSS); SQL injection; clickjacking; authentication credentials with respect to SSL/HTTPS; and host header validation.
Django’s template language strikes a balance between power and ease, making it comfortable for people already familiar with HTML, such as designers and front-end developers. Django also provides a robust form library that handles rendering forms as HTML and validating user-submitted data, automatically converting it to native Python types. This enables you to create and update your data without writing much code at all.
