Nice work bro,


Heroku?? How did you host your static files?
Thanks bro.

I used whitenoise via heroku because heroku can only store static files, you will have to host your media files elsewhere such as AWS, and the likes..

Talking about Django, I have started using it.
I don't just know why, but I prefer using function based views. What's your preference guys

Hi everyone, I’m a newbie to Django, the whole
Concept has been quite terrible to understand, but am following a book “Django 3 by Example”.. hopefully I’ll download Dennis Ivy’s Django crash course maybe that’ll give more help, any other suggestions would be highly welcome.

Thanks, I’ve been finding it difficult using “taggit” on Django 3.0, seems it doesn’t work with Django 3 yet, I might be wrong tho, but am following a book “Django 3 by example” I’m building a blog.

I’ve checked the author’s GitHub, the code is the same, don’t know what’s wrong.

I don't think so, it doesn't work in django 3.0, it was made for django 1.11.
You can also create a custom tags in your model without the use of taggit.

I’m a Django newbie, I don’t know how to go about that and I think the whole tag thing is affecting the project as a whole. Sad and angry right now.

I'm following the same book.

seems you error is from the page=page_obj that was added when he used class view.
according to the GitHub repo, it was removed

it paginator code should be this
{% include "pagination.html" with page=posts %}

Extending the User Model from AbstractUser or AbstractBaseUser, which is preferable and which is actually recommended?
Re: For Django Developer by Taofeekdboy(m): 7:11am On Jun 20

It totally depends on you and what you wanna customize with the user model but if you don't know what you are doing or you just want to add little details to your custom user, you can use AbstractUser, using AbstractBaseUser will override the User model and it requires you to know what you are doing ie being experienced because one foul play will cause inconsistency in your project
Let me give some instances;
If you want to extend a user to have gender, location or profile, you can extend from AbstractUser to customize your user model.
If you need to write permissions and authentication for your user, then I will suggest AbstractBaseUser.

Personally for me, I do extend from AbstractUser because I do write my permissions and authentication without extending from AbstractBaseUser

In what context are you talking about, coding or the finished project. If you are talking about coding, then django is a framework not a language, it is written in Python but you can code Python on Android with pydroid. You can't code django on an android phone.

Remove the "with page=posts", then check what's happening.

If it doesn't work still, just go paginator.html, copy the html code into list.html, you won't need to use the include paginator.html in list.html again

If you want to know more about hosting on heroku, i will recommend Corey Schafer tutorial on YouTube.

Create a new model called Tag, add name of tags you wanna add to it, maybe News, educations, sports and so on. Then on your Post model add a ManytoMany field name tags to it. Then you can add tags to a particular post and you can customize it to your own taste, I don't use taggits as at times third party libraries give more problems and headache.
Try the above method and let me know, it is more suitable and you will be in control.

Heroku is good but only issue I have with them is not been able to host my media files with them, I do use aws and they do charge me for that but on pythonanywhere, it is free to host your media files.

I will try that out too, where can i get a reference material for it or probably videos, i prefer video

It worked! Thanks, I think I’d have to pause the book for now and watch some Django crash courses first, maybe with that I can easily understand the basics of Django before coming back to the book, I might as well delete the whole project and start again because most of the codes are just copy and paste, I’d prefer doing the typing instead copy and paste.

Once again thanks everyone.

And for those that might need one or two books, you can visit singlelogin dot com, there are so many books there.

Here is another project I just finished, an ecommerce project, as lockdown continues and my company never resume.

Anyone in need of the source code should signify.

Stack used:
Django for backend
React for frontend

Not much validation on the input data as I was distracted and doing it for fun just to add more functionalities.

The project is hosted on pythonanywhere as heroku will make shell a dollar for my media files.

Your feedback will be much appreciated.

I prefer Flask over Django due to total control and flexibility.

Currently using it to develop a voting system for universities/polytechnics elections

Test - Still under development
https://digitavote.pythonanywhere.com/

No regret so far and the plugins/extensions are good too.

Be good with Python and everything will be ok. Though flexibility comes with great responsibilities tongue grin cheesy cheesy

You can request for voter's testing account too coz it requires valid email address due to OTP for login

Bruh, thanks for this. I really appreciate.

But you could also Extend the User Model by creating a "Profile Model" and using a OneToOne relationship with the User Model. And also using SIGNALS.

Thanks a lot for the explanation.

Sure, it all depends on you and what makes you comfortable, I was learning flask before but switched to django because of its complexity and its documentation.
About flexibility, when you are comfortable using django, you can be flexible and be in control as well thou everything has been written for you but you can choose to customize it for your own use.

Nice project BTW. Good job
