Examples of Global Companies Using Django

Who uses Django? reportedly 2554 companies using Django in their tech stacks, including Pinterest, Instagram, and Udemy.

Why do companies using Django?

Django is a high-level Python web framework that enables rapid development of secure and maintainable websites. Built by experienced developers, Django takes care of much of the hassle of web development, so you can focus on writing your app without needing to reinvent the wheel.

Why many companies using django instead of flask?

Django is suitable for multiple page applications. Flask is suitable for only single-page applications. -Django-admin is the in-built bootstrapping tool of Django that allows the creation of web applications without any external input. Flask does not come with an in-built bootstrapping tool.

These are 9 popular Django applications: 

1. Instagram

instagram rathank.com

Instagram is a social media application for sharing photos and videos. The app is also the world’s largest deployment of the Django web framework. 

Python’s practicality and simplicity make the language a top-tier choice for Instagram. But after the platform scaled, efficiency became a bigger priority. Using Django, Instagram Engineering was able to build custom tools to meet this goal. 

2. National Geographic

national geographic rathank.com

National Geographic is a television network and popular magazine series focused on delivering educational content in subject areas like science, culture, and history. 

Django eases the development of data-driven, complex websites like National Geographic’s website. Django also has its own content management system (CMS) called django CMS which the National Geographic’s Education page relies on. 

3. Mozilla

Mozilla is the global nonprofit you can credit with the creation of the popular Firefox browser. Though it may seem hard to believe, Firefox is better and faster at handling some processes than even Google Chrome, mostly where load management and RAM consumption is concerned. 

With Django, Firefox can tackle large amounts of traffic and API hits in a more efficient manner. 

4. Spotify

spotify rathank.com

Spotify is an audio streaming provider. Users listen to digital music (and sometimes podcasts) around the world through the internet. 

Python is used for Spotify’s back-end services and data analysis. And Spotify uses a Django app or two to increase functionality. 

5. Pinterest

Pinterest is another social media platform like Instagram. But although you can share images just the same, Pinterest’s primary concern is that users gain inspiration for topics related to fashion, home, cooking, etc. 

The platform’s user-friendly interface is to blame for much of its appeal. Django’s open-source capacity means Pinterest can modify the framework for its needs.

6. Disqus

Disqus rathank.com

Disqus allows websites to feature commenting. Using Disqus, primarily blogs and online communities offer user profiles, social networking, and other methods of social integration to help users feel more connected. 

Disqus has never been shy about deploying Django in their tech stack. In 2013, Disqus met a goal of handling 8 billion page views per month and 45,000 requests per second, thanks to the scalability that Django can provide.  

7. Bitbucket

Bitbucket rathank.com

Bitbucket is a big name in the developer community. Developers use version control systems (VCS’s) to push and pull code changes to a repository online. This methodology paves the way for easy collaboration. 

Bitbucket is a popular repository hosting service. Launched in 2008, Bitbucket made its big debut only two years later when Atlassian acquired the service, owing its quick turnaround time to Django’s prowess. 

8. Eventbrite

Eventbrite rathank.com

Eventbrite is an event management and ticketing service. Users access Eventbrite via app or web and can find local and non-local events to attend for virtually any price, including free. 

With COVID-19 entering the picture, Eventbrite has not lost sight of its utility and now users can find online events as well. 

In 2010, Eventbrite made the decision to migrate to Django. They felt moving to Django would incite a more feature-rich and vibrant community. 

And in the short term, Django brings about benefits such as URL routing, form building, unit tests, and more. 

9. Prezi

Prezi rathank.com

Prezi is a website that permits users to build interactive presentations. When powerpoints are a little too square to tell the story you want, Prezi is the way to go. 

Prezi actually runs on Django CMS, a content management system (CMS) written using the Django framework. Giving its user base dynamic, fully responsive designs is one of the principal reasons Prezi chose to migrate to Django. 

Fantastically enough, there is an entire Prezi explaining Prezi’s use of Django over the years, created by Szilveszter Farkas, a former developer at Prezi.
