Django, the Python-based equivalent to the Ruby on Rails web development framework, is presently one of the hottest topics in web development today. In Pro Django: Web Development Done Right, Adrian Holovaty, one of Djangos creators, and Django lead developer Jacob Kaplan-Moss show you how they use this framework to create award-winning web sites. Over the course of three parts, they guide you through the creation of a web application reminiscent of chicagocrime.org. The first part of the book introduces Django fundamentals like installation and configuration. Youll learn about creating the components that power a Django-driven web site. The second part delves into the more sophisticated features of Django, like outputting non-HTML content (such as RSS feeds and PDFs), plus caching and user management. The third part serves as a detailed reference to Djangos many configuration options and commands. The book even includes seven appendixes for looking up configurations options and commands. In all, this book provides the ultimate tutorial and reference to the popular Django framework.
