Small comment: Django doesn’t use Jinja, but it’s own templating engine. They look similar because, as Jinja’s website says, “It is inspired by Django's templating system.”

Django can definitely use Jinja as a templating language since 1.8 (docs.djangoproject.com/en/2.1/topi...)

Not arguing otherwise. The point here is to compare default behaviors between Flask and Django. You can also use SQLAlchemy instead of Django’s built in ORM if you want.
