    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.
