Advantages and Disadvantages of Django

Python is the 3rd most popular programming language in 2020. It is a powerful, dynamic, syntax-simplified, programming language used for high-level web application development and machine learning apps. And if you know about Python, you’ve probably heard of Django web framework – the most used Python framework.

Django development has gained much fame due to its computation capabilities. Today, Django stands as one of the most used web development frameworks.

Developers widely prefer Django web development for its “batteries included” philosophy. It means that as a Django developer, you don’t have to install separate libraries for adding functionalities.

Django provides a plethora of features to add standard functionalities in any kind of web application.

Django web framework and the “batteries included” philosophy

Django is an MVT-based, open-source web application development framework which is written in Python. It enables clear coding and reduces complexities in web development.

Python web development with Django becomes easier because Python lacks built-in web development capabilities. Django provides functionalities which compensate for that gap.

Django development is highly popular because of its “batteries included” philosophy. It provides many common functionalities for web development, which saves you from writing code for each and every function.

Django web framework also provides advanced functionalities like ORM, database migration, user authentication, admin panel, and forms.

Django programmers love the framework for its capability to simplify working with databases. It speeds up the development process and enables developers to build scalable applications. Developers also use it because it allows splitting Django projects into multiple applications.

While developers use Django web framework across the world, it has its own pros and cons. Some developers outright love Django while some are happy with their age-old frameworks like Ruby on Rails.

Understanding the advantages and disadvantages of Django development is essential for developers and enterprises who are confused about which framework they should choose for development.
