I have decided to rewrite my web site engine (http://gergely.polonkai.eu/ currently in PHP with Symfony 2) in Python, using the Django Framework.

Nice. Why?

See my blog post about it. However, the story is a bit more than this.

  • I am writing a C library using GLib and GObject
  • for that, I have written some Python examples
  • while testing “my” Python bindings, the Django Framework came into my mind, as I have already heard about it before while I was developing using Symfony 2
  • I took a look, then took a big breath
  • I learned Python and Django in about 6 hours (no, I havent mastered either of them; just learned the basics)
  • Ive converted my old, heavyweight Symfony project (~250MB with the vendors folder) to Django (~60MB with all the required libraries)

I think you did this-or-that wrong

As I said, Im no Python expert, which means there may be stuff that is against best practice. If you point me out, I will be grateful!
