    Latest mention: 53% of Django projects have redundant code | | 2021-01-14

    Django ships with default settings. When django.conf.settings is imported we're not getting a module, we're getting an instance of LazySettings. This object is a wrapper around a "holder" of the actual settings. During the normal running of Django the holder first uses the default settings then ingests the values in the file defined by the environment variable DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE.

    Latest mention: Ask HN: Who is hiring? (January 2021) | | 2021-01-04

    PostHog is open-source product analytics. Graduated YC W20, we were the most popular B2B software HN launch since 2012. Our GitHub repo [0] has 3.6k stars and a growing and active community. We've raised significant funding with 10 years of runway and are growing quickly. We're 10+ people.

    We're looking for a full-stack engineer, someone who knows what a good product should look like. Our stack is Django/React/Redux (Kea -- main contributor works at PostHog too!).

    Also looking for an SRE to take care of scaling huge event volumes, both for our cloud offering and larger customers.

    We have a culture of written async communication (see our handbook [1]), lots of individual responsibility and an opportunity to make a huge impact. Being fully remote means we're able to create a team that is truly diverse. We're based all over the world, and the team includes ex data team leads from Uber, former YC founders, CTOs turned developers and recent grads.

  • healthchecks

    A Cron Monitoring Tool written in Python & Django

    Latest mention: Recomendations for a backup server | | 2021-01-08

    I use and recommend, it has a simple API that you can use, and it can notify you using multiple methods (email, matrix, slack, discord, etc), plus it's open-source, so you can self-host (I don't, but if you are setting up this for a company with compliance requirements this is quite nice).

  • django-jet

    Modern responsive template for the Django admin interface with improved functionality. We are proud to announce completely new Jet. Please check out Live Demo

  • django-shop

    A Django based shop system

  • pyinstrument

    🚴 Call stack profiler for Python. Shows you why your code is slow!

    Latest mention: Can you recommend a function call logging tool? | | 2020-12-24

    Although meant for profiling, pyinstrument does this quite well and has a tree viz. I'd not recommend turning it on in production though since the overhead is non-trivial.

  • factory_boy

    A test fixtures replacement for Python

  • authlib

    The ultimate Python library in building OAuth, OpenID Connect clients and servers. JWS,JWE,JWK,JWA,JWT included.

    Latest mention: Aioauth – asynchronous oauth2 framework for Python 3 | | 2021-01-10

    aioauth is a library, the server in this context means that it implements the oauth2 protocol itself (rfc6749). there are few libraries for Python: authlib and oauthlib that also implement the oauth2 protocol, but unfortunately their implementation is not asynchronous, thus you cannot use these libraries in fastapi or aiohttp. aioauth solves this problem

  • django-bootstrap3

    Bootstrap 3 integration with Django.

  • django-webpack-loader

    Transparently use webpack with django

    Latest mention: Show HN: Django and React SaaS boilerplate tutorial | | 2020-12-23

    The biggest challenge to using Django with React IMO is getting the right blend of isomorphic rendering down. I don't want to go full SPA with Django as this defeats the purpose of Django IMO. Most parts of the site I want server-rendered, while in stateful parts I want React. So, let's say I have a site with 20 different React "apps" (i.e. stateful components) that I want to distribute amongst my various Django sections (Django "Apps" within the same project). And I want to do that with one webpackconfig. How do I tell my webpack where to put all those react bundles? The answer I've found is django-webpack-loader[1], however as you can see in the Issues section, one of the biggest limitations here is the inability to chunk React (and other issues).

    Does anyone have a solution they like for this kind of isomporphic Django problem?


  • weblate

    Web based localization tool with tight version control integration.

  • django-oauth-toolkit

    OAuth2 goodies for the Djangonauts!

    Latest mention: Authorization in Django, how to approach it as a begginer? | | 2021-01-01

    I would suggest token auth as it is stateless, secure and can be used on multiple devices. OAuth/OAuth2 is the industry standard at the moment but you can also use a simple JWT token signature. On top of this, Django REST framework offers a lot of libraries for this purpose e.g. django-rest-framework-simplejwt, django-rest-framework-social-oauth2, django-oauth-toolkit, and more.

  • django-environ

    Django-environ allows you to utilize 12factor inspired environment variables to configure your Django application.
