Book Description

Django is a high-level Python web framework that was developed by a fast-moving online-news operation to meet the stringent twin challenges of newsroom deadlines and the needs of web developers. It is designed to promote rapid development and clean, pragmatic design and lets you build high-performing, elegant web applications rapidly. Django focuses on automating as much as possible and adhering to the DRY (Don't Repeat Yourself) principle, making it easier to build high-performance web applications faster, with less code.

This book will show you how to assemble Django's features and leverage its power to design, develop, and deploy a fully-featured website. It will walk you through the creation of an example web application, with lots of code. Each chapter will add new features to the site, and show what parts of Django to work on to build these features.

This book has been specifically written for Python developers new to Django, and it's goal is to help you put together Django applications as quickly as possible. This book will give you clear, concise and, of course, practical guidance to take you from the basics of creating pages with Django through to learning the skills that will make you a Django developer to be reckoned with.

What You Will Learn

  • User registration and management
  • Dealing with content customization and searching
  • Working with the tag data model
  • Creating your own administration interface
  • Using AJAX to enhance the user interface
  • Building user networks
  • Setting up and deploying Django applications on the production web server

Chapter 1 gives you an introduction to MVC web development frameworks, a history of Django, and explains why Python and Django are the best tools to use to achieve the aim of this book.

Chapter 2 provides a step-by-step guide to installing Python, Django, and an appropriate database system so that you can create an empty project and set up the development server.

Chapter 3 creates the main page so that we have the initial view and a URL. You will learn how to create templates for both the main page and the user page.

Chapter 4 is where the application really starts to take shape as user management is implemented. Learn how to log users in and out, create a registration form and allow users to manage their own accounts by changing email or password details.

Chapter 5 explores how to manage your growing bank of content. Create tags, tag clouds, and a bookmark submission form all of which interact with your database. Security features also come into play as you learn how to restrict access to certain pages and protect against malicious input.

Chapter 6 enables you to enhance your application with AJAX and jQuery as users can now edit entries in place and do live searching. Data entry is also made easier with the introduction of auto-completion.

Chapter 7 shows you how to enable users to vote and comment on their bookmark entries.

Chapter 8 focuses on the administration interface. You will learn how to create and customize the interface, which allows you to manage content and to set permissions for users and groups.

Chapter 9 will give your application a much more professional feel through the implementation of RSS feeds and pagination.

Chapter 10 tackles social networks providing the 'social' element of your application. Users will be able to build a friend network, browse the bookmarks of their friends, and invite their friends to join the website.

Chapter 11 covers extending and deploying your application. You will also learn about advanced features including offering the site in multiple languages, managing the site during high traffic, and configuring the site for a production environment.

Chapter 12 takes a brief look at extra Django features that have not been covered elsewhere in the book. You will gain the knowledge required to further your application and build on the basic skills that you have learned throughout the book.
