Django Development at Lambert Labs
Lambert Labs is a Django and Python web development company based in London, UK. One of our favourite tools for web development in Python is Django. We provide Django development services to create websites, APIs and applications for our clients across the UK and globally.
What is Django?
Django is an open source Python web application framework that facilitates fast and simple development. We can build websites, APIs and applications through simple architecture and repeatable patterns. It allows our developers to focus on building new products without having to start from scratch with each app they build. It is fast, secure and scalable.
Django benefits from Django Packages, a rich ecosystem of well-maintained open source packages. These can be used to make Django applications more powerful. When providing Django development services, Lambert Labs makes full use of Django Packages to allow us to build high-quality Django applications for our clients at speed.
Our Django Development Services
Here at Lambert Labs we have in-house Django experts that build scalable, secure and reliable web applications using Django.
We have successfully built Django solutions for clients with as diverse needs as:
- proof of concept MVPs.
- complex and wide-scoped web applications.
- maintenance of existing legacy Django applications.
- and much more!
As a specialist Django development company, our team has the skills and know-how required to meet your Django and Python development needs.
Django for Websites
Using Django allows us to build reliable, scalable websites quickly. The huge community supporting Django means that bugs and vulnerabilities are found and fixed fast, making it one of the most secure ways to build a site. Third-party libraries can provide solutions for tasks such as social authentication, payment provider integration and building APIs, or even be a fully-fledged CMS framework such as Wagtail. The availability of these packages mean we can build complex sites fast.
And it’s not just us using Django, many of the websites that you know and love also utilise Django in their tech-stack too! Some big players who use Django include:
- And many more!
Here at Lambert Labs we offer expert Django development services to help build your website quickly and efficiently.
Django for APIs with Django REST Framework
If you have an API that needs to be built, Django is fit for that task. One of the most popular and powerful Django packages is Django REST Framework. This package allows us to build secure and reliable APIs while utilising the power of the Django framework to handle other backend tasks such as database integration and user authentication.
Django REST framework allows us to build reliable APIs fast. If you need an API built, Lambert Labs’ Django development services will have you covered.
Django for MVPs
Using a mature web framework like Django means that we can build web applications quickly and efficiently. As a lot of the low-level functionality, such as user authentication, is already taken care of, this means we can focus on building what matters – business critical features of your application. This speed of development makes Django a great framework to choose when building an MVP.
If you want to build an MVP, a Django development company such as Lambert Labs can help you get your product to investors and consumers rapidly.
Django with a Front-end Framework
Django is a back-end framework, meaning that it deals with mainly server-side functionality and cannot execute code in the browser. This is perfect for some sites, but often sites require a more dynamic display in the browser.
This requires a modern front-end framework such as React or Vue.js. Building a site using a a front-end framework with Django on the backend allows us to build modern, dynamic sites while retaining all of the powerful features and speed of development that Django provides. Using Django REST framework means we can quickly and easily build an API to communicate with the front-end framework.
If you want a modern, secure and dynamic web application built consider using our React and Django development services.
Django and Databases
Traditionally Django is paired with a SQL database on the backend such as PostgreSQL or MySQL. It is also possible to use non-relational databases too, with several database engines existing to integrate Django with MongoDB for example.
At Lambert Labs we are database management and development experts, and can choose the best database solution for you based on your business needs.
