What is Django

Django is a free and open-source web framework written in Python that clings to the model template view (MTV) software architectural pattern.

The MTV pattern is Django’s interpretation of the model-view-controller (MVC) pattern.

As indicated by the Django Software Foundation, the model is the single definitive source of your data, the view depicts the data that gets represented to the user through a Python callback function to a particular URL, and the template is the means by which Django creates HTML progressively.

Django’s core principles are scalability, fast developments, and re-usability. It is additionally known for its framework-level consistency and loose coupling, allowing for individual components to be autonomous of each other.

Try not to rehash yourself (DRY programming) is a necessary piece of Django principles.


LTS is a well-known standard in software development. It means that developers will support this version of the framework for an extended period of time (for Django, it’s usually 3 years or more).

You can safely update your version to a newer patch release without fear of breaking compatibility with the source code. For this period, all bugs and security losses will be fixed as soon as possible. Conversely, non-LTS versions will be supported only until a newer feature release comes out (note that Django developers support the last two feature releases at a time).
