View Full Version : Quality of database created by django

Hello,

I am building a web interface for a database at my school. I can code a decent, clean, maintainable mysql database and a web interface for it. It's always nice to know that the database itself is separate from the web interface.

I am trying to decide whether to use a framework like django for the first time. Does a framework like django create a quality database? Or is there a lot of cruft in the database that gets created?

For example, any wysiwyg web site builder creates ugly html and css code. That's why I never liked dreamweaver, and why I cringe when my wife has trouble with her blogger formatting. Does django create a clean database on the backend, or should I create the database myself and then build a django site to access the database? I'd like the database to be "detachable" from the site if needed at some point.

Have you tried posting this question in the Django users group? They have a very active discussion, and could probably give you some detailed answers.

Thanks for the suggestion. I got a reasonable answer at StackOverflow.
