Guys I am been working on a forum with django for the past one month, I am almost done the only problem I have now is it is some how slow, not as fast as NL, I have problem with text editor, I think NL is custom made, I currently using tinyMCE but it is blank on mobile

Any suggestions

I think NL is quite satisfied with what they have and are not ready to update I see a lot of people complain here but nothing is being done. I love NL for speed it have been here seen the 2g ages

Nairaland runs on a special server (So I heard o). Cloud server. If so don’t bother your web wouldn’t run like his

Without a reason, let's discuss??
1. Why should they change from the current (What is the problem statement)
2. Can't the problem be solved with the current
3. Why Python? And not nodeJS or Asp.net?

I'm pretty sure(70%) nl runs on python already with the cherry.py framework u can check it out. Nl is lightweight, fast and best of its kind in nigeria. If at all nairaland needs improvement it should be in the frontend not backend. The backend looks ok. Nl opens on very low end phones which is more than u can say for most sites. Concerning ur slow django code try and reduce the amount of work ur server does on each route i can't help u much without access to ur code.

You are right with the cherry.py because when seun was active he talks about it all the time.

I am going to reduced the SQL queries per route

Do u know anything about wysiwyg editor like tiny MCE

tinyMCE is nice and it works on most languages but have used it with Javascript and python(django) and it is awesome. Nice interface and more plug-ins

From a user's point of view, I see no reason to do this. Django won't make the site any better than it is based on the way the site works. The site already works well and is fast enough.

Except if there are new features and we've got a lot of backend logic that needs calculations, you don't need Django here. Besides that can be accomplished with serverless functions.

Or if the site employs lots of programmers and they feel working with Python will make them more productive than ever. Except that, there is absolutely no reason to do so.

"Switch"
Imagine rebuilding the house u live in with Aronski blocks because they told u its secured, flexible and so on.
I think we need to understand something here. Nairaland is an idea, to me it doesn't matter what your project was built with but what the IDEA is all about.
As far as am concerned, more programming languages will rise and if we as developers are unable to build something innovative with what we have learnt we will keep on been the consumers...

So the fact anyone has learnt Vue, React, Python or any language out there doesn't mean he/she can...

Imagine learning a new language today and he already wants everyone to switch to the language.

I'm sure the next request should be; Facebook should switch to python.

Hey bro! Try removing the zero when there's no notification. A single conditional statement would do.

I don’t think it is appropriate to put the voting tracker when a live vote is on. You can put an option to turn it on or off.

Good talk, software development should always be problem oriented, not cause we feel that we can build this or change that.
