Django REST framework vs Guzzle: What are the differences?

Django REST framework: Web APIs for Django. Django REST framework is a powerful and flexible toolkit that makes it easy to build Web APIs; Guzzle: PHP HTTP client that makes it easy to send HTTP requests and trivial to integrate with web services. Guzzle is a PHP HTTP client that makes it easy to send HTTP requests and trivial to integrate with web services.

Django REST framework and Guzzle can be primarily classified as "Microframeworks (Backend)" tools.

Some of the features offered by Django REST framework are:

  • The Web browsable API is a huge usability win for your developers.
  • Authentication policies including OAuth1a and OAuth2 out of the box.
  • Serialization that supports both ORM and non-ORM data sources.

On the other hand, Guzzle provides the following key features:

  • Manages things like persistent connections, represents query strings as collections, simplifies sending streaming POST requests with fields and files, and abstracts away the underlying HTTP transport layer.
  • Can send both synchronous and asynchronous requests using the same interface without requiring a dependency on a specific event loop.
  • Pluggable HTTP handlers allows Guzzle to integrate with any method you choose for sending HTTP requests over the wire (e.g., cURL, sockets, PHPโ€™s stream wrapper, non-blocking event loops like React, etc.).

Django REST framework and Guzzle are both open source tools. It seems that Guzzle with 17.1K GitHub stars and 1.95K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Django REST framework with 14.6K GitHub stars and 4.33K GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, Django REST framework has a broader approval, being mentioned in 159 company stacks & 79 developers stacks; compared to Guzzle, which is listed in 10 company stacks and 7 developer stacks.

      Zulip has been powered by Django since the very early days of its development with Django 1.4, back in 2012. As a reasonably mature web application with significant scale, we're at the stage in many companies' development where one starts to rip out more and more of the web framework to optimize things or just make them work the way we want. (E.g. while I was at Dropbox in early 2016, we discovered we only had about 600 lines of code left from the original Pylons framework that actually ran).

      One of the things that has been really fantastic about Django is that we're still happily using it for the vast majority of code in the project, and every time Django comes out with a new release, I read the changelog and get excited about several improvements that actually make my life better. While Django has made some design decisions that I don't agree with (e.g. I'm not a fan of Django REST framework, and think it makes life more difficult), Django also makes it easy to do your own thing, which we've done to great effect (see the linked article for details on our has_request_variables framework).

      Overall I think we've gotten a ton of value out of Python and Django and would recommend it to anyone starting a new full-featured web application project today.

      Django REST delivered all the content to the BI, making calls to the Postgres DB, aggregating numeric data, and automatically associating data models at the time of row creation.

      Instead of using Django for both back and frontend, I use DRF to layout an API that ReactJs can pull data from. Easy to setup, well documented, and works seamlessly with React.
