Decisions about Jinja

Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose Jinja in their tech stack.

I have learned both Python and JavaScript. I also tried my hand at Django. But i found it difficult to work with Django, on frontend its Jinja format is very confusing and limited. I have not tried Node.js yet and unsure which tool to go ahead with. I want an internship as soon as possible so please answer keeping that in mind.
