Django with React | An Ecommerce Website

Django with React | An Ecommerce Website

In this course, we will build a completely customized eCommerce / shopping cart application from scratch using Django & REACT with the following functionality…

Django and React are both popular web development frameworks and can be used together to build a website.

Django is a high-level Python framework that provides a server-side back-end for web applications while React is a JavaScript library used for building user interfaces.

By using Django as the back-end and React as the front-end, you can take advantage of the strengths of both frameworks to build a dynamic and efficient web application.

React can handle the user interface, allowing for fast and interactive updates, while Django can handle the server-side logic and database management.

There are several ways to integrate React into a Django project, including using a single-page application (SPA) architecture and serving the React app from the Django back-end or using Django REST framework to provide a REST API that the React app can consume.

The choice depends on the specific requirements of your project.

This project is a collaboration with Brad Traversy where we will be taking his original MEARN Stack ecommerce course and building it out with a Django backend instead of Node, JS & Express. Brad & I decided it would be fun to remake the exact same project with a Django backend/API and connect it to the same React frontend/design.

My hope is that you learn how not to only build out this application but add on your own features to it. We learn best by building & customizing our own projects.
