Introducing djarter – An opinionated Django starter project

I have spent six years resisting the urge to make a starter template because (a) it locks you in to a particular development style, and (b) it prevents the repetition that promotes learning.

But in the spirit of deploying high quality work, this repo contains a few best practices and useful tools for Django projects.

These features would take a while to get set up from scratch, and might not be worth it for every project. But cloning this starter template can save you roughly a full day of work if you're planning to extend the built-in user authentication.

Most importantly, though, no Bootstrap styling was used in the making of this template.
