Episode #88: Lightweight Django

Published Tues, Dec 6, 2016, recorded Wed, Nov 23, 2016.


Django is a very popular Python web framework. One reason is you have many building blocks to drop in for large sections of your application. Need a full-on admin table editor backend? That's a few lines of code and boom you have a basic table editor.

This applies to many people. But those of us, myself included, who appreciate lightweight frameworks where we choose just what is included and piece together our web apps from best-of-breed components find this a turn off.

This week you'll meet Julia Elman and Mark Lavin, authors of Lightweight Django who are here to dispel the myth that Django apps have to be built out of large building blocks.
