Django.WTF - discover trending Django packages

https://django.wtf

I've often used djangopackages.org to explore app I could re-use in my projects. While the site is great, I thought we could build a modern variant with focus on package curation. I've been overwhelmed with the number of categories djangopackages.org offers and the poor categorization. It also includes packages aren't maintained or updated anymore.

Together with a friend, I've built a new site based on the same concept - index popular Django apps, categorize, rank and display the most important information for each package. The site contains fewer categories than djangopackages.org and we curate and categorize projects ourselves.

Since we were scraping Github for package info, we figured we could scrape contributors to Django projects as well ;). The site contains the most prolific contributors to Django projects as well who is trending right now.

If you have any ideas for features we could add to the site, let us know :)
