Utilize Django to build modern, interactive websites without needing a complicated frontend framework.
Django is a great web framework for "perfectionists with deadlines" and provides a lot of built-in functionality when building server-side websites. However, a lot has changed on the web since its inception in 2005, and now it has become somewhat common advice for modern web applications to only use it as an API backend, if at all.
