Python, Django top frameworks and it's comparison

Python is a general-purpose programming language. We can use python for so many applications including web applications. Framework is a collection of modules or packages, which helps in writing a web application or helps in developing a web application. We don't have to worry about low level details such as protocols, socket, thread management when working with a framework.

Framework makes the developer’s life smarter and easier by giving a structure for application development. They automate the implementation of common solutions, which gives flexibility to developers to focus only on app logic instead of routine. They provide common backend fast reliable and scalable easily maintainable web applications.

Frameworks provides functionality to perform the following operations for developing web applications.

  • URL Routing.
  • Input form handling and validation.
  • Output Formats with Templating Engine HTML, XML, JSON.
  • Data Connection, manipulating using ORM mappers.
  • Web security.
  • Session Storage and retrieval.

URL Routing

Mechanism of URL mapping is staying at the same web page when you click on some other link.

Input Form handling and Validation

The data entered into a form needs to be in the right format, and certain fields are mandatory for effective use of form.

Output Formats with Templating Engine

Allows developers to design the content of their own type.

Data Connection, manipulating using OMR

  • Persistent data manipulation.
  • Object relational mapper - It is a code library that automates the transfer of data into a relational database table into objects that are most commonly used in an application.

Web Security

Web security against the cross site required forgery also known as a CSRF SQL injection cross-site scripting and other common malicious attacks.

Session Storage

There are only a few operations we can perform using python frameworks.

Advantages of Python Frameworks:
