Django 1.7

The world's most used Python framework, a powerful toolkit for building clean, powerful and versatile MVC-based Web applications
Until Quentin Tarantino released his epic movie masterpiece, Django was synonymous with "the best Python framework of all time." While its SEO and search reputation might have taken a hit, Django is still the same top-shelf solution for developing Web applications in Python.

With a dedicated userbase and a plethora of online tutorials, getting started with Django is not only recommended but extremely easy to do also.

This behemoth of the Python development world is extremely well-respected and has been the inspiration of many similar frameworks, some of them even outside of Python's spectrum.

After years and years of development, Django is now an extremely stable tool, with very few bugs and a lot of documentation to help any beginner out. It is also constantly updated and upgraded to the latest Python releases as well.

Right now Django has been used on major Internet sites like Instagram, Mozilla, Disqus, OpenStack, Rdio and Pinterest, just to name a few. What this tells you as a developer is that you can easily trust it to run your clients' projects if it can handle the traffic and userbases the aforementioned sites handle.

Main features:

  • Built-in ORM
  • Built-in template engine
  • Built-in cache system
  • I18n support
  • SEO friendly URLs
  • Admin interface module
  • MVC and DRY codebase
  • Programmatic API available
  • Widely used in production environments
  • Well tested code
  • Community driven
  • Documentation

What's New in This Release:
  • A new built-in database migration system. Notes on upgrading from South (a popular third-party application providing migration functionality) are also available.
  • A refactored concept of Django applications. Django applications are no longer tied to the existence of a models files, and can now specify both configuration data and code to be executed as Django starts up.
  • Improvements to the model Field API to support migrations and, in the future, to enable easy addition of composite-key support to Django's ORM.
  • Improvements for custom Manager and QuerySet classes, allowing reverse relationship traversal to specify the Manager to use, and creation of a Manager from a custom QuerySet class.
