Django vs Ionic: What are the differences?

Developers describe Django as "The Web framework for perfectionists with deadlines". Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design. On the other hand, Ionic is detailed as "A beautiful front-end framework for developing cross-platform apps with web technologies like Angular and React". Free and open source, Ionic offers a library of mobile and desktop-optimized HTML, CSS and JS components for building highly interactive apps. Use with Angular, React, Vue, or plain JavaScript.

Django can be classified as a tool in the "Frameworks (Full Stack)" category, while Ionic is grouped under "Cross-Platform Mobile Development".

"Rapid development", "Open source" and "Great community" are the key factors why developers consider Django; whereas "Allows for rapid prototyping", "Hybrid mobile" and "It's angularjs" are the primary reasons why Ionic is favored.

Django and Ionic are both open source tools. It seems that Django with 42.3K GitHub stars and 18.2K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Ionic with 38.4K GitHub stars and 13.1K GitHub forks.

MIT, Sentry, and Zapier are some of the popular companies that use Django, whereas Ionic is used by Sellsuki, Edify, and eTobb. Django has a broader approval, being mentioned in 979 company stacks & 882 developers stacks; compared to Ionic, which is listed in 392 company stacks and 350 developer stacks.

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.
