Top 23 Python Django Projects

  • GitHub repo Django

    The Web framework for perfectionists with deadlines.

    Project mention: Introspecting Python Parameter Values via Argument Binding | | 2021-10-16

    So when can this actually be used? Well, for our project, we have a Django web application project that implements Celery Asynchronous Tasks. We can schedule these tasks to be run by a background worker, but we require an audit log to determine who started a task and what organization the task is tied back to.

  • GitHub repo Sentry

    Sentry is cross-platform application monitoring, with a focus on error reporting.

    Project mention: Not a programmer but you have hired one? Use these tools to monitor their code quality, code stability, and overall work delivered | | 2021-10-16



    Optimize your datasets for ML. Goodbye, boilerplate code - the fastest dataset optimization and management tool for computer vision.

  • GitHub repo django-rest-framework

    Web APIs for Django. 🎸

    Project mention: The Decline of Django | | 2021-10-15

    Seems like a strange bit of feedback to me. My company uses Django as the backend for our REST API and it's simply phenomenal. Django isn't a complete solution out of the box, but that's why things like Django REST Framework [0] exist. It supports JSON-based views and has an excellent serialization layer that can map directly to the ORM models.

    This setup does NOT help with serving our frontend app, but we're using React for that anyway and I'm not sure I'd want our frontend so tightly coupled to the backend.

    The fact that Django is mature and extremely stable between versions is a huge selling point for us. I'm not interested in making sweeping changes to our backend just because someone invented a new paradigm that may or may not be helpful to our app (eg, GraphQL).

    That said, rendering HTML templates server-side does feel pretty archaic these days. I think it would be great for Django to take a more API-centric approach for a default installation. I can imagine that anybody coming from the JS world would feel totally out of place in terms of how Django works out of the box.


  • GitHub repo Saleor

    A modular, high performance, headless e-commerce platform built with Python, GraphQL, Django, and React.

    Project mention: Storefront [3.0+] Not Working | | 2021-10-12


  • GitHub repo Zappa

    Serverless Python

    Project mention: Best Hosting platform for hosting multiple FLASK apps? | | 2021-08-10

    I like deploying on AWS Fargate or AWS Lambda using zappa for very low-cost deployments. Because Lambda has a (always) free tier usage, you can get away with hosting many sites for next-to-nothing with Zappa.

  • GitHub repo Wagtail

    A Django content management system focused on flexibility and user experience

    Project mention: I hate WordPress. What are modern CMS that natively support custom post types? | | 2021-10-14

    I use Wagtail. An open source CMS built on Django. It's easy to create custom page types with custom fields. It's streamfield field type is similar to Craft CMS's matrix fields - it's an alternative to richtext fields, i.e. you build your content from blocks of different content types. I think this approach is better than Gutenberg. Gutenberg allows too much freedom for the editor to mess up the page. What I like about Wagtail is you have complete control over the HTML. You're given a model and it's your job to wrap markup around it.

  • GitHub repo awx

    AWX Project

    Project mention: Automatically join ansible group. | | 2021-10-16

    what you are trying to do is a bit unclear, I am not sure how ansible tower would solve this solution but AWX is a free alternative

  • Nanos

  • GitHub repo doccano

    Open source annotation tool for machine learning practitioners.

  • GitHub repo django-oscar

    Domain-driven e-commerce for Django

    Project mention: What is Django -Oscar? | | 2021-09-30

    Is there anything specific that's not clear from reading its website ("Why choose Oscar?", "Problems Oscar is already solving") or looking at the documentation ("Features", "Example requirements that Oscar projects already handle")?

  • GitHub repo PostHog

    🦔 PostHog provides open-source product analytics that you can self host.

  • GitHub repo drf-yasg

    Automated generation of real Swagger/OpenAPI 2.0 schemas from Django REST Framework code.

    Project mention: Beautiful Hackernews UI: Working with Hackernews API in Python (Django) | | 2021-09-25

    The major apps are news and accounts. While the former handles almost all the physical functionalities of the system, the latter only does user stuff. The api app exposes the data for consumption. It is documented using drf-yasg, a Swagger generation tool implemented without using the schema generation provided by Django Rest Framework. The api has a token-based authentication which requires that all POST requests must provide a token to be accepted, otherwise a not too interesting response:

  • GitHub repo django-oauth-toolkit

    OAuth2 goodies for the Djangonauts!

    Project mention: Authentication with Django REST Framework | | 2021-02-25
