Django vs NestJS: What are the differences?
Django and NestJS can be categorized as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
"Rapid development" is the primary reason why developers consider Django over the competitors, whereas "Powerful but super friendly to work with" was stated as the key factor in picking NestJS.
Django and NestJS are both open source tools. Django with 42.6K GitHub stars and 18.3K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than NestJS with 17.4K GitHub stars and 1.22K GitHub forks.

Django has a broader approval, being mentioned in 992 company stacks & 914 developers stacks; compared to NestJS, which is listed in 12 company stacks and 13 developer stacks.
We’re a new startup so we need to be able to deliver quick changes as we find our product market fit. We’ve also got to ensure that we’re moving money safely, and keeping perfect records. The technologies we’ve chosen mix mature but well maintained frameworks like Django, with modern web-first and api-first front ends like GraphQL, NextJS, and Chakra. We use a little Golang sparingly in our backend to ensure that when we interact with financial services, we do so with statically compiled, strongly typed, and strictly limited and reviewed code.

This website was originally written in Yii as PHP was my main language back then. After learning Django, I realized just how quickly you could build a web app with less lines. So I migrated my website to Django in a week or two and managed to cut down the lines of code by half. Some of the lines saving came from the models, the views, and the expressiveness of Python. Django requires like config for the models and they provide many generic views that abstracts away common patterns.
I am planning to develop project management system SAAS based. Can any one help me with selection of platforms from Django or Laravel and for database MongoDB or Firebase/Firestore or MySql? On front end I am going to use Quasar Framework (VueJS). Note : project will be Webapp, Mobile app and desktop app.
