20 Creative Websites Running Django:

November 21, 2009 on General, Inspiration

Out of the hundreds of web application frameworks and content management systems available, only a select few surface for the masses to see. The reason is – not everyone who use your framework have a creative eye for making good design. Of course the more people utilize your framework – the more creative your user pool get.

Take Django for instance. “Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design”. Though I never tried implementing it – here’s a list of 20 beautiful websites powered by Django:

    It’s hard for me to imagine using anything besides wordpress, lol. But the sites look great. I have a photo site project coming up and I think although there are probably better options available I still end up going back to wordpress because I can install it with my eyes closed and so many plugins available already…whereas with something like django I’d be completely lost and frustrated because I have never used it before!

    Chelle,

    I’d have to agree with you AND I’m a python developer! So far from what I can see django can’t compete with ALL of the bells and whistles wordpress offers, BUT it can compete in other areas.

    Good luck.

    Hey, You forgot the most popular site. http://www.logobite.com is a graphic designer network powered by django-python. Designers create their portfolios here. You should add it to this list to have more weight.

    We did Ubiquitous Innovation (http://www.ubiquitousinnovation.com) and Branded Bridge Line (http://www.brandedbridgeline.com) both as custom designed, Django implementations. The designs are clean and the implementation straightforward.

  • Josef Nakládal

    And one new Django site from the Czech Republic: http://www.childbook.me . We love Django.

  • Chris Hawkes

    Django is great, but your list of sites doesn’t show the real power. Sites like Dropbox, Quora, Pinterest, Instagram, Reddit, PBS, Washington Times are all written using Django. The sites you mentioned just make good use of images and CSS which can run on any platform.

    Personally I love django I wrote http://www.noobmovies.com in it.
