About Django Packages¶
Django Packages contains information about more than 5,000 packages that can be used by Django developers to make their lives easier. Many types of packages can be added to Django Packages, including:
- Apps: Small components installed via
- Frameworks: Larger projects that combine many apps. Wagtail CMS, for example.
- Projects: Standalone projects that are not installed into your project, but may still be useful. The djangoproject.com website, for example.
- Other utilities: Other packages that may or may not be installed, or are not directly relevant to Django-specific development, but are still useful to Django developers. The linter
black, for example.
Django Packages makes it easier to compare packages to one another using grids. A grid is a collection of packages about a single topic. There is a grid for CMS packages, for example.
Django Packages supports packages hosted on the following platforms:
- BitBucket (some support)
- GitHub (fully supported)
- GitLab (some support)
