We’ve been developing Django web apps for large enterprises, startups and NGOs since 2008. Django is a modern ‘batteries included’ web framework that we absolutely love. Written in Python and ideally suited to rapid development, Django is used by many popular services such as Pinterest, Instagram and Bitbucket.
Django comes bundled with many essential components that make it faster and easier to build web applications. There’s no need to reinvent the wheel and build out custom features when they come ready-to-go in Django.
Some of these components include a comprehensive admin interface, templating engine, elegant ORM and schema migrations built-in. These out-of-the-box features support rapid development, making Django web app development remarkably fast.
Developing apps with Django accelerates our client’s vision – from prototyping to development and launch.
Stable and proven
As consultants it’s not our job to recommend the most-hyped or latest technology. We purposefully stay a couple of steps behind the hype cycle to make sure we’re recommending the best technology fit for our clients, and not just the latest technology du jour.
Django isn’t the hottest new technology by any stretch, but it’s incredibly stable, and reliable. We’ve built hundreds of applications with Django and wouldn’t trade its stability and reliability for any other framework.
Tivix works with Best Egg to develop and maintain their Django web application. Best Egg has revolutionized the marketplace lending industry, offering personal loans direct to individuals, cutting retail banks out of the equation.
The MVP for your MVP
Django more so than any other web framework is the perfect choice for MVP (Minimum Viable Product) development. Django applications can be spun up quickly and the framework is scalable for when your product gains traction and you need it to be.
It’s flexibility and rapid development time make the Django web framework ideally suited to startups looking to find product/market fit and for building enterprise MVP pilots alike.
Python is a powerful high-level programming language. It’s syntax encourages readability and simplicity. Transparent and easy-to-understand code makes the development process faster. This saves our clients two important things: time and money.
The open-source Python community offers a huge amount of libraries for a variety of different tasks which further accelerates development. Python is one of the most popular programming languages in the world, meaning Django/Python projects developed by Tivix can be easily passed onto and supported by other software teams or engineers.
Django is entirely open-source, and at Tivix we truly believe in supporting the open-source community. With Django, there are thousands of open-source libraries available for building features and extensive long-term support for major releases.
Tivix has open-sourced a number of popular projects to make life easier for the Django development community:
Django REST framework
The Django REST framework (DRF) is a fully featured framework for building web APIs. It provides many advantages that make it one of the best toolkits for web API development.
Based on Django’s class-based views. DRF comes with lots of out-of-the-box features, such as a powerful serialization engine, user authentication packages for OAuth, a built in API browser for testing, and integration with many 3rd party libraries. Django REST framework is incredibly flexible and can be moulded to a project’s specific needs.Django Rest Framework Website
