Sources for Django/SQLAlchemy statement #48
In the Django article, section Django ORM resources, lines 223-227, about the future integration of SQLAlchemy in Django :
It is the first time I hear about this. But what a delight !
Could you add a bit more context to this statement :
Still, thank you for your well-organized educational website !
Yea it's been awhile since I updated that line, I expected there would be more activity around this in late 2014 / early 2015. The statement was based on random conversations I had with some of the core committers at DjangoCon US in 2013. The conversation was essentially that the templating system and the ORM should be more easily interchangeable if a developer wants to use Jinja2 on the front end or SQLAlchemy on the back end.
Multiple template engines are happening in 1.8 but I haven't heard anything on the ORM front lately. Looks like I'll have to do some more research if 1.9 is doing anything about multiple ORMs. If not, I'll go in and update the Django page to make it clear this isn't happening in the near term.
Does that help? I didn't mean to mislead or create false hopes.
I just found out that there is such a proposal in the Django GSoC 2015 Ideas :
But it would be only a PoC :
