Django: Another "Rails" Web Framework

By Nuno Mariz, on 18 July 2005 @ 11:51
The Rails hype continues:
Django for Python is the most recently announced of what is becoming a long line of web frameworks inspired by Ruby on Rails. Others that have popped up include MonoRail for .NET & Mono, Subway for Python, Trails for Java, Catalyst and Maypole for Perl. In the context of all these rails derivatives, this article on "Could Rails have been built without Ruby?" is an interesting read. [source]
For PHP we have also cake and biscuit.

    From what I've seen, Django wasn't "inspired" by Rails. Holovaty and Willison's development of Django started before Rails was public -- over 2 years ago. So it's not quite accurate to lump Django in with "all these rails derivatives."

    Hi David,
    I think you are correct, in their FAQ:
    <b>Is Django stable?</b>
    We've been using Django for almost <b>two years</b>. Sites built on Django have weathered traffic spikes of over one million hits an hour, and at least one Slashdotting. Yes, it's quite stable.
    So, <a href="" rel="nofollow">Django</a> is older than <a href="" rel="nofollow">Ruby on Rails</a>. Although both share some similar ideas, such as the <a href="" rel="nofollow">DRY principle</a>.
