django pluggables



I have struck goldmine ! Bored today with another plone innard hacking session I began hunting around on the internet for a django plugins site. I came across this site called http://www.djangoplugables.com/ ! This is exactly what I am looking for with a cute little plug in socket as a logo! I am astounded by the speed in which django has grown !

I have coded some applications with django the past and I can say I like the feel of using it. It is has what I need in terms of a web application framework and is closer to the python metal than plone or zope will ever hope to be. Don't get me wrong, I still have a soft spot for zope and I truly hope that zope 3's modularity will be more elegant than the monolithic monstrosity that zope 2.x is.

Today while looking at the pluggable site, has given me much more confidence of adopting django as one of the stable technologies to deliver web applications in my company's offerings. Coming from a background that have used both I can attest to why a senior python programmer would love django. I hope though the django community get it right and do not start on the path of sticking stuff together to create another zope 2.x !
