Needs advice
on
Flask
and
Django REST framework

Hey! So I am planning to make an e-commerce website with React Native as my frontend technology stack and MongoDB as my database. I was wondering what will be the best REST framework to use for my backend that will simply serve the frontend. Is Django rest framework a good option or should I go with Flask? I am currently leaning towards flask as the development team is well versed in it. Please help!

FastAPI is modern microframework. If you haven't used any of them, I'd suggest FastAPI. Django REST is also good if you have previous experience with it.

If the application is simple such as less endpoint or simple logic, I'd suggest Flask. But what you're building is quite a large system that contains many logics and a lot of models. So I'd suggest you with Django and Django REST framework. Django ORM is also one of the best ORM in the world as well.
