Django vs Phalcon: 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, Phalcon is detailed as "Web framework delivered as a C-extension for PHP". Phalcon is a web framework implemented as a C extension offering high performance and lower resource consumption.

Django and Phalcon belong to "Frameworks (Full Stack)" category of the tech stack.

"Rapid development" is the primary reason why developers consider Django over the competitors, whereas "Fast" was stated as the key factor in picking Phalcon.

Django and Phalcon are both open source tools. It seems that Django with 42.6K GitHub stars and 18.3K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Phalcon with 9.74K GitHub stars and 1.78K GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, Django has a broader approval, being mentioned in 992 company stacks & 914 developers stacks; compared to Phalcon, which is listed in 28 company stacks and 15 developer stacks.

I think precompiled PHP is the way to go. It saves CPU cycles, RAM and overall I/O. It saves money too. Smaller requirements = smaller bills.

I've tried symfony and zend. Phalcon was easiest to use.

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.
