Django vs Spring: 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, Spring is detailed as "Provides a comprehensive programming and configuration model for modern Java-based enterprise applications". A key element of Spring is infrastructural support at the application level: Spring focuses on the "plumbing" of enterprise applications so that teams can focus on application-level business logic, without unnecessary ties to specific deployment environments.

Django and Spring can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

"Rapid development", "Open source" and "Great community" are the key factors why developers consider Django; whereas "Java", "Open source" and "Great community" are the primary reasons why Spring is favored.

Django and Spring are both open source tools. Django with 42.3K GitHub stars and 18.2K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Spring with 30.1K GitHub stars and 19.2K GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, Django has a broader approval, being mentioned in 979 company stacks & 882 developers stacks; compared to Spring, which is listed in 316 company stacks and 179 developer stacks.
