A Year+ of Package
               Comparisons
•   We launched
    djangopackages.com

•   We’ve seen the
    Django package

Why a Thunderdome?
• Pattern: you hear about the “best” package for
  X, and you use it
• Comparison grids on djangopackages.com help
  • but not 100% effective/objective
• Why not a Consumer Reports-style analysis?




                                                   Django Packages Thunderdome
• This is what a Django community manager

  • 20. Scoring: Modularity Range: -20 t0 +20 • Just add to up to these things: • INSTALLED_APPS • MIDDLEWARE • urls.py Django Packages Thunderdome • models.py in a few cases @pydanny / @audreyr • A few custom settings +20 20
  • 21. Scoring: Modularity • Having to write your own custom code/ backends from scratch • Having to write your own templates • Having to study the code to make it work Django Packages Thunderdome • More framework than pluggable @pydanny / @audreyr -5 for any of these violations 21

  • 30. How packages were chosen for this • We sent out a survey and chose the: ★ most commonly-used packages ★ most interesting packages Django Packages Thunderdome • Not direct one-to-one comparisons @pydanny / @audreyr 30
