    Silky smooth profiling for Django

    If you're using Django as an API, without templates, django debug toolbar is useless because it requires templates. It won't work with DRF endpoints which means you miss out on profiling and SQL tracing. That's where django-silk shines.

    Automated auditing, performance metrics, and best practices for the web.

    Good question! Unfortunately I don't have a really great answer. You can use assertNumQueries or django_assert_num_queries to make sure the number of queries stay at what you expect. But, that doesn't tell the whole story for "performance". I've used Lighthouse to track end to end performance of a website over time. Hopefully that helps, but let me know if you meant something else!

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!
