Python Web Development with Django


Using the simple, robust, Python-based Django framework, you can build powerful Web solutions with remarkably few lines of code. In Python Web Development with Django®, three experienced Django and Python developers cover all the techniques, tools, and concepts you need to make the most of Django 1.0, including all the major features of the new release.

 

The authors teach Django through in-depth explanations, plus provide extensive sample code supported with images and line-by-line explanations. You’ll discover how Django leverages Python’s development speed and flexibility to help you solve a wide spectrum of Web development problems and learn Django best practices covered nowhere else. You’ll build your first Django application in just minutes and deepen your real-world skills through start-to-finish application projects including

  • Simple Web log (blog)
  • Online photo gallery
  • Simple content management system
  • Ajax-powered live blogger
  • Online source code sharing/syntax highlighting tool
  • How to run your Django applications on the Google App Engine

 

This complete guide starts by introducing Python, Django, and Web development concepts, then dives into the Django framework, providing a deep understanding of its major components (models, views, templates), and how they come together to form complete Web applications. After a discussion of four independent working Django applications, coverage turns to advanced topics, such as caching, extending the template system, syndication, admin customization, and testing. Valuable reference appendices cover using the command-line, installing and configuring Django, development tools, exploring existing Django applications, the Google App Engine, and how to get more involved with the Django community.

Beginning Django: Web Application Development and Deployment with Python


Discover the Django web application framework and get started building Python-based web applications. This book takes you from the basics of Django all the way through to cutting-edge topics such as creating RESTful applications. Beginning Django also covers ancillary, but essential, development topics, including configuration settings, static resource management, logging, debugging, and email. Along with material on data access with SQL queries, you’ll have all you need to get up and running with Django 1.11 LTS, which is compatible with Python 2 and Python 3.
Once you’ve built your web application, you’ll need to be the admin, so the next part of the book covers how to enforce permission management with users and groups. This technique allows you to restrict access to URLs and content, giving you total control of your data. In addition, you’ll work with and customize the Django admin site, which provides access to a Django project’s data.
After reading and using this book, you’ll be able to build a Django application top to bottom and be ready to move on to more advanced or complex Django application development.

What You’ll Learn
  • Get started with the Django framework
  • Use Django views, class-based views, URLs, middleware, forms, templates, and Jinja templates
  • Take advantage of Django models, including model relationships, migrations, queries, and forms
  • Leverage the Django admin site to get access to the database used by a Django project
  • Deploy Django REST services to serve as the data backbone for mobile, IoT, and SaaS systems
Who This Book Is For 
Python developers new to the Django web application development framework and web developers new to Python and Django.

Flask Web Development: Developing Web Applications with Python


Take full creative control of your web applications with Flask, the Python-based microframework. With this hands-on book, you’ll learn Flask from the ground up by developing a complete social blogging application step-by-step. Author Miguel Grinberg walks you through the framework’s core functionality, and shows you how to extend applications with advanced web techniques such as database migration and web service communication.

Rather than impose development guidelines as other frameworks do, Flask leaves the business of extensions up to you. If you have Python experience, this book shows you how to take advantage of that creative freedom.

  • Learn Flask’s basic application structure and write an example app
  • Work with must-have components—templates, databases, web forms, and email support
  • Use packages and modules to structure a large application that scales
  • Implement user authentication, roles, and profiles
  • Build a blogging feature by reusing templates, paginating item lists, and working with rich text
  • Use a Flask-based RESTful API to expose app functionality to smartphones, tablets, and other third-party clients
  • Learn how to run unit tests and enhance application performance
  • Explore options for deploying your web app to a production server

Test-Driven Development with Python


By taking you through the development of a real web application from beginning to end, this hands-on guide demonstrates the practical advantages of test-driven development (TDD) with Python. You’ll learn how to write and run tests before building each part of your app, and then develop the minimum amount of code required to pass those tests. The result? Clean code that works.

In the process, you’ll learn the basics of Django, Selenium, Git, jQuery, and Mock, along with current web development techniques. If you’re ready to take your Python skills to the next level, this book clearly demonstrates how TDD encourages simple designs and inspires confidence.

  • Dive into the TDD workflow, including the unit test/code cycle and refactoring
  • Use unit tests for classes and functions, and functional tests for user interactions within the browser
  • Learn when and how to use mock objects, and the pros and cons of isolated vs. integrated tests
  • Test and automate your deployments with a staging server
  • Apply tests to the third-party plugins you integrate into your site
  • Use a Continuous Integration environment to run your tests automatically
