Features of django : Features of any technology can tell us what it is best suitable for, whenever we learn some new technology it is due to a reason. There are lots of reasons to learn Django. And, through this Django tutorial, we will tell you what Django has solved and what it is doing best.

1. Excellent Documentation :
Great documentation is one of the main reasons to start learning Django framework. If we compare Django with other open source technologies, it provides the best documentation in the web development field.
Django has been the best framework at documentation from 2005 to the present date, and the documentation has only been getting better with the active development of technology. The documentation is also offered in different languages.

2. SEO Optimised :
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) as from the name it means that adding your website to the search engine so that it appears in the top results. Django uses the method of maintaining the websites through URLs instead of the IP addresses on the server, which makes it easy for SEO optimization.

3. Python web-framework :
Python is a powerful language. It is also one of the main reasons people started learning Django. On the other hand, Python is currently the most popular language among all languages. It is very easy to learn.
We can use this language in almost anything from web-development to machine-learning (ML) or Artificial Intelligence and everything in between. These features allow the python and thus Django to be the most powerful, efficient and easy to learn framework than others.

4. High Scalability :
Scalability means that at what level, our technology gets to implement. For bigger websites like Instagram or YouTube, there are lots of active users (in millions) who generate data in huge amount (terabytes of data/day). This kind of scope requires a system or application to be very precise and error-free.
Django is ideal for anyone who wants to make websites error-free and scalable.

5. Offers High Security :
Django is very secure. For example, Django provides csrf_tokens for secure form submission On the other hand, the Django's developers community helps the users to keep the website secure by enhancing the security features time to time.

6. Rapid Development :
Rapid development means that we won’t require a good backend knowledge to make a website. We will also not ask to create separate server files to frame the database and connect the same. Django handles this work and a lot of other tasks itself. We won’t need to create extra files for each task. These features makes the website development process very fast.


7. Database management :
Django comes with Sqlite database which is lightweight and fast. Well if the website is large we can also use other databases like MySQL ,PostgreSQL etc. although you do not have to install any extra database like MySQL for developing the website. We uses the inbuilt Sqlite (it makes the things so much easy).
It is not required to write SQL commands to create tables. The tables in database are created by using Python commands (models) & this is the thing which i personally like the most about django. This means you only require a knowledge of HTML ,CSS and python (basic requirements) to create a website using django.
