Is Django a Full Stack Framework?
The title of this post, “Is Django a Full Stack Framework?” is a question I receive often from new web developers. It’s a very valid question so I wanted to address it here rather than keep repeating myself in individual emails.
As a result Django comes with an intentionally basic Templating Language that can perform basic logic such as loops and filters. And to its credit, Django has resisted the temptation to add complexity here; the Django Templating Language still remains very bare-boned in functionality.
Most Django developers therefore fall into the back-end camp of the full-stack spectrum. They control the database and logic of a site and often, in companies, rely on a separate front-end developer to customize the presentation in a Django template.
