Which do you prefer to use for websites? Django + python, React + Django back? Or....what else? I’m getting to the point of “what should I focus on”,
React hooks, I like, but it seems like there’s a whole lot there to lear, individualy, but vs Django, it’s more strait forward.

Or, how often do you use Django REST framework???

Django is python, and is for backend. React is Javascript and is for frontend
