Over the past month I’ve been dabbling with Django by starting to convert the prototype of Mail Tally (PHP) into a useable site powered by it. So far I have to say that I love it! The template inheritance is mind blowing, and the ease of mapping URLs to views just blows my mind.
It’s embarrassing to say that I’ve never used a proper PHP framework before. At my day job we have an in-house CMS that has some MVC leanings, and prior to that I’ve done a lot of work in WordPress. It’s refreshing to write web apps with a framework that makes it fun.
