Django Example Projects and Code

Django is a Python web framework. Official Django logo. Trademark Django Software Foundation.

Part of Django's widespread adoption comes from its broad ecosystem of open source code libraries and example projects.

It is a good idea to familiarize yourself with the following projects to learn what is available to you beyond the extensive "batteries-included" code base.

These projects, ordered alphabetically, are also helpful as example code for how to build your own applications.

Code Examples Sorted by Django Class and Function

Specific examples are shown on the following individual pages, organized by classes and functions provided by Django, that are frequently used when building your own web applications.
