What is Django REST framework?

Django REST framework is a powerful and flexible toolkit that makes it easy to build Web APIs.

What is Rails API?

Rails::API is a subset of a normal Rails application, created for applications that don't require all functionality that a complete Rails application provides. It is a bit more lightweight, and consequently a bit faster than a normal Rails application. The main example for its usage is in API applications only, where you usually don't need the entire Rails middleware stack nor template generation.

What is Sails.js?

Sails is designed to mimic the MVC pattern of frameworks like Ruby on Rails, but with support for the requirements of modern apps: data-driven APIs with scalable, service-oriented architecture.

    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.

    django에서 api를 만드는데 최고의 framework라고 생각합니다. 아직은 tutorial 수준의 class base view, function base view 수준으로 사용합니다.

    하지만 현재 진행중인 프로젝트의 심화로 REST framework를 심도있게 다룰 예정입니다.

    Project is mainly a RESTful service project, so DRF had a a huge role in it.
