What is Django

Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design. Built by experienced developers, it takes care of much of the hassle of Web development, so you can focus on writing your app without needing to reinvent the wheel. It’s free and open source.

Set up PC for Django

Being a Python framework, Django requires Python to run. Django is compatible with Python2, Python3 (the recommended version). To get started working with Python3, you’ll need to have access to the Python interpreter (the console, and related tools and libraries). We can accomplish this in several ways:

  • Download the installer from the official download page.
  • Use a package manager like yum, apt on Linux systems
  • Homebrew for MacOS users.
Django Framework - API Server.

Build the API Server

This simple API starter is built with Python / Django Rest / SQLite3 and JWT Auth. The authentication flow is based on json web tokens. The product comes with a simple, intuitive codebase, DRF integration, SQLite for persistence JWT Authentication API, Docker, and unitary tests.

Step #1 - Clone Sources

$ git clone
$ cd api-server-django 
Django REST Api - Clone Sources

Step #2 - Install modules using a virtual environment

$ virtualenv -p python3 venv
$ source venv/bin/activate
$ pip install -r requirements.txt 
Django REST Api - Install Dependencies

Step #3 - Start the API Server

$ python migrate
$ python runserver 5000 
Django REST Api - Start for Development

At this point, our simple Django API server should be up & running http://localhost:5000.

Build the React UI

The UI expects a running API backend that exposes an interface for login/logout and register actions. By default, the guest users are redirected to the login page. Once the user is authenticated using an existing account or the new one, all private pages are accessible. Here are the steps to compile the product.

Step #1 - Clone the React UI Project
