Django

by v3.0.4 | Debian 9

 A Python framework that simplifies the process of quickly building web applications and with less code.

Create a web application with a Python framework that includes tools and functionalities to help ship code faster. Django is  free and open source framework that gives developers access to tools that both speed up builds and better incorporate clean pragmatic design. Unlike Flask, Django comes with a built-in Object Relational Mapping (ORM) tool to integrate with the relational database of your choice, including SQLite, PostgreSQL, MySQL, and Oracle. 

Jump-start your web application with Django with Linode’s Django One-Click App.
