This article presents an open-source Django App crafted and built on top of a modern Material Design from
Creative-Tim. Django Material Design uses some of the best practices recommended for any Django Project and a basic set of features like authentication, Docker, and CI/CD deployment scripts.
In Django, an "app" (short for application) is a self-contained module or component of a web application that encapsulates a specific functionality or set of related features.
👉 Django Apps - How it works, a comprehensive article
Django encourages developers to structure their projects by breaking them down into multiple apps, each responsible for a particular aspect of the application.
Django Apps are designed to be reusable, making it easier to develop complex web applications with modular and maintainable code.
The product mentioned in the title can be downloaded and used directly from GitHub, using a classic Django setup:
Clone/Download the sources
$ git clone https://github.com/app-generator/django-material-kit.git $ cd django-material-kit
Install the dependencies
$ virtualenv env $ source env/bin/activate $ pip install -r requirements.txt
$ python manage.py makemigrations $ python manage.py migrate
Start the Django APP
$ python manage.py runserver
✅ Start in
Another way to bootstrap the project is to execute the Docker Compose script shipped with the source code:
$ docker-compose up --build
Material Kit is built with over 60 frontend individual elements, like buttons, inputs, navbars, nav tabs, cards, or alerts, giving you the freedom of choosing and combining. All components can take variations in color, which you can easily modify using SASS files and classes.
