I love Django pluggable applications. Basically you just need to install the application, and you’re done. How many hours do you spend to create registration system for your new project? Well, in Django you just need to use django-registration, set up the urls and everything is up and running. In this way you can save time and focus to your business logic.
This is 10 Django applications I can’t live without.
- django-registration – I use this application in every Django project.
- django-pagination – In most application, you will need to paginate your list, so django-pagination come to rescue.
