What stack did/do you guys use for making an MVP in hackathons from scratch?

I use Django mostly for handling both backend and frontend. For the design, I just use an online CSS template.

Google Firebase. Super fast setup and they support hosting, realtime-db, Cloud functions etc all for free (at least enough minutes/queries etc for an MVP). Usually use Vue or React from some template.

Cool Thanks! But what framework do you use for building the application and consume the google firebase services?

I haven't really been involved in a Hackathon to date but I'm interested in peoples responses here. I have a side project that I'm working on that is intended for people who need to quickly build an MVP or use as part of a Hackathon. It would be nice to know what features people look for when choosing a framework/boilerplate for a Hackathon.

What are your reasons for choosing Django?

It is really easy to integrate simple css templates and get a database. I mean you have choose something as a backend. So, Django. Are there any nice alternatives?

Yeah I hear a lot of good things about Django, I know enough to build a simple REST API but that's about it. I've had very little exposure with Django/python.

You should definitely try Django.
