FEATURES OF DJANGO FRAMEWORK

The Django project’s stability, performance, and community have grown tremendously since the framework’s creation. The Django framework continues to evolve significantly with new functionalities such as database migrations with every release.

  1. Stability

    Often, you will see that Django is amongst the first frameworks to respond to a new vulnerability. It means, Django is a time-tested framework and has been improving over the course of time. Not every bug, but a lot of them get fixes in Django.

    As you must have heard, “Humans get wiser with age; a software makes better decisions over time”.

  2. Excellent Documentation

    Django despite being the open source project, it provides wonderful documentation and its documents are always up to the mark by Django developers. When Django was introduced it was one of the main features that set Django apart from other open source projects and has only gotten better over time.

  3. Highly Scalable

    Scalability for any technology is a big factor when using the technology on larger projects with wide coverage. Django can utilize all the hardware you throw at it and still, it can develop on smaller scale systems.

    It is based on a “share-nothing architecture”, which means you can add hardware at any level like database, servers, web servers and cache servers.

    For Example –

    Instagram and Pinterest use Django while maintaining a large number of active users.

  4. Resolves Security Issues

    Django by default resolves lots of security issues which are there in frameworks of PHP. Django does so, by dynamically generating web pages and using templates to send information to web-browsers, from direct viewing of the internet.

  5. Utilizes SEO

    SEO stands for “Search Engine Optimization”, a process for increasing the quantity and quality of traffic to your website through organic search engine results. Web-development and SEO often seem to be crossing each other. But with Django, you should find this less of an issue.

    Django framework uses the human-readable website URLs, which helps with search engines and isn’t only helpful from the actual user’s perspective, but also helpful for search engine algorithms using the keywords in the URL when ranking sites.

  6. Huge Library of Packages

    Django community is very huge and supporting and they provide you with packages for almost everything you may need in a website and you can very easily create management systems according to you.

  7. Allows Pragmatic and Robust Design

    Django’s main features are that it allows for full-scale web-applications which creates with ease. Its code is from scratch rather than importing some of the libraries of python which already have the same features.

Django Architecture

Before moving to Django architecture, we will first discuss the web application framework. The web application framework is the tool that provides you with components and modules pre-written so that web applications are made much more easily.

Django has lots of features that make it so much efficient and easy and fun to use. Django is based on Model-View-Controller (MVC) architecture, which consists of three different parts:

  • Model –

    The Model is the logical data structure behind the complete application and represents by a database (generally relational databases such as MySQL, Postgres).

  • View –

    The View is the user interface that you see in the browser whenever you visit a website. They represent it through HTML/CSS/JavaScript files.

  • Controller –

    The Controller is the middleman that connects the view and model together. It means the controller is the passing data from the model to the view.

In MVC architecture, your application will revolve around the model by either displaying it or manipulating it.

For example –

A user will enter a URL in their browser, that request will go through the internet protocols(HTTP), to the server, which will call the Django.

Django will then process the given URL path, and if the URL matches, it will call the Controller which will get an entry from your database and then render a View (HTML/CSS/JavaScript Web page).
