1. Django works on Python
The framework is based on Python — a high-level, dynamic, and interpreted programming language, well-loved by developers.
2. Django is simple
Django’s documentation is exemplary. It was initially launched with high-quality docs, and they are still maintained at the same level, which makes it easy to use. More than that, one of Django’s main purposes is to simplify the development process: it covers the basics, so you can focus on the more unique and/or complex features of your project.
3. Django suits any kind of project
Django is not an enterprise solution like C# or Java, yet it suits most types of projects, no matter their size. For example, if you’re building a social media type web application, Django can handle the growth at any scale and capacity, be it heavy traffic or volumes of information. But if you want to make something simple, using Django for web development of a blog or a book database, for instance, is an excellent choice as well since it has everything you need to quickly assemble a working application.
4. Django is DRY and KISS compliant
Django follows the DRY (Don’t Repeat Yourself) principle, which means you can replace frequently repeated software patterns with abstractions, or use data normalization. This way, you avoid redundancy and bugs. Plus, reusing the code simplifies development so you can focus on coding unique features. KISS means “Keep It Short and Simple”, among its many variations. In Django, it means simple, easy to read, and understandable code. For example, methods shouldn’t be longer than 40-50 lines.
