Lots of cool new features, such as MariaDB support, exclusion constraints for Postgres users, filter expressions, and more. Congrats to all involved on a great release! 🎉
This article is heavy on advantages and light on disadvantages, but maybe that reflects reality? I’ve never used Django myself, but it looks like a mature and much beloved web framework.
I’ve wanted this for years, but apparently never enough to build it myself:
A passive monitoring tool written in Python & Django. Set up your cron jobs, backup scripts, weekly email sending scripts, nightly data import jobs etc. to ping this service when they complete. When they don’t send a ping on time, you receive an alert.
The service offers a generous 20 free checks before you start paying. And since it’s an open source Django app, you can set it up to run on your own infrastructure too.
The main idea of this project is to provide a fully configured template for django projects, where code quality, testing, documentation, security, and scalability are number one priorities.
