      How developers use Django, Grails, and Play

      Play is a central framework/component/library (not sure what to call things these days) in Scala. We <3 Scala, and therefore we <3 Play.

      Play is on of several frameworks we are prototyping and vetting for various public-facing websites, and may ultimately be the framework behind the main datapile.io website.

      Django takes the hassle out of building an enterprise web application using Python.

      • admin app for administration
      • ORM for deploying against different database vendors
      • social auth package for authentication with enterprise IdP
      • guardian package for authorization

      Our backend was written in Django. We took advantage of the ready-to-go admin interface as a go-to solution for the client to be able to authorize his users, as well as other functionality, while most of the work was done through the Django Rest Framework.

      Hands down the best Python web framework I've used. Very easy to extend and add apps and go from 0 to full project quickly and painlessly. I built a fully authenticated project with a single endpoint in less than 30 minutes.

      정말 편리하고 많은것을 알아서 제공해 주는 프레임워크 이다. 책의 예제만 진행해서 많이 써보지는 못했지만, 쉽게 쉽게 웹을 개발 할 수 있는 점이 매력적 이다. 게다가 orm 이 기본으로 내장 되어 있고 db 도 sqlite 가 기본으로 되어있어. 그냥 django 만 설치하면 바로 웹개발이 가능하다.

      django는 저의 무기입니다.

      django 이외에 flask로 간단한 restful api를 만들면서 느낀점은 framework 보다 언어가 중요하다는것을 알았고 django가 얼마나 큰 framework인지 알게되었습니다.

      저는 signal 사용을 좋아합니다.

      I used Play to build a configuration UI for the service, which let you create and manage the menus (a hierarchical tree of options and actions).
