Flango Starter Template

An utterly fantastic project starter template for Django 2.0, using Flask as a frontend.

How it works

  • frontend.py contains your Flask application, which is used for your frontend.
  • The django application is routed to /admin.

Features

  • Flask for the frontend, using the Django ORM.
  • Production-ready configuration for Static Files, Database Settings, Gunicorn, etc.
  • Enhancements to Django's static file serving functionality via WhiteNoise.
  • Latest Python 3.6 runtime environment.

How to Use

To use this project, follow these steps:

  1. Create your working environment.
  2. Install Django and Flask ($ pipenv install --no-hashes)
  3. Create a new project using this template

Creating Your Project

Using this template to create a new Django app is easy::

$ django-admin.py startproject --template=https://github.com/kennethreitz/flango/archive/master.zip --name=Procfile --name=Pipfile helloworld
