Django logoDjango is a very popular Python web framework that enables rapid development of secure and maintainable websites. Built by experienced developers, Django takes care of much of the hassle of web development, so programmers can focus on writing apps without needing to reinvent the wheel. It is free and open source, has a thriving and active community, great documentation, and many options for free and paid-for support.

Django's primary goal is to ease the creation of complex, database-driven websites. Some well-known sites that use Django include the Public Broadcasting Service, Instagram, Mozilla, National Geographic, The Washington Times, Disqus, Bitbucket, and Nextdoor.

Django CMS

Django CMS is a flexible Content Management System that is built on top of the Django web framework. Django takes security extremely seriously (https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.11/topics/security/) and helps developers avoid many common security mistakes, such as SQL injection, cross-site scripting, cross-site request forgery and clickjacking. Its user authentication system provides a secure way to manage user accounts and passwords. Any Django application that follows good practices will inherit those security benefits. 
 
Many thousands of sites use Django CMS, including Ubuntu, NASA, PBS, National Geographic, just to name a few. A number of banks, organisations that require maximum web security, do rely on Django CMS.

Example Django CMS features rolled out:

  • Faceted search with Solr
  • Haystack integration for member and content search
  • Django FSM implementation for custom workflows
  • Advanced menu system development
  • Custom plugin creation

Success stories:

  • Epylon
    • We implemented a Django CMS B2B purchase portal for the K-12 industry
  • Rapid Science
    • We added many new features to a Django CMS cancer research portal

Wagtail

Just like Django CMS, Wagtail is built in Python and Django, so it is very secure and reliable. Wagtail is focused on flexibility and user experience. Extending the model to add more custom functions was made espcially easy, as well as integrating other Django applications with Wagtail CMS. However the initial learning curve can be in the way of developers new to Wagtail.
