Life is about facing new challenges - Kostya Tszyu
Hi Pythonistas, a new week, a new 'bite' of Python programming. To keep it #100DaysOfDjango, this week we let you get some more practice with this awesome web framework. Last time we had an open Django challenge, for this one we have you choose between 3 specific apps.
Build an app to keep track of something:
- Pomodori (25 min segments) of reading, walking, deep work, etc.
- Overtime (Flask example)
- BMI (Flask example)
One requirement: data needs to be stored in a DB and be editable (basic CRUD).
Don't be shy
Make a books or movie review app:
- Long time ago I (Bob) created fbreadinglist and sharemovi.es. Both PHP and far from perfect, but good candidates to learn Django. You do need a bit of front-end skills to pull this off however, but who doesn't these days, right? ;)
- The FB login is optional, if you want to try it out check out this article. Otherwise you could use django-registration, see our step-by-step guide.
Books and movie review apps are just not your thing? Sure, we understand. What about something cooler? Our second option for the main course is a code review tool for PyBites:
- Create a Django app where one can submit code challenge solutions.
- Have different roles: participants (can submit code), reviewer (can review code), admin (can promote users to reviewer and assign code reviews).
- Github API integration would be really cool, but don't let that distract you. This is about Django.
Share your great work with the world deploying it to Heroku.
Take notice: the coolest working apps get a place under the #100DaysOfDjango project on our projects page!
This doc also provides you with instructions how you can submit your code to our community branch via a Pull Request (PR). We will feature your PRs in our start-of-the-week challenge review (previous editions).
Last but not least: there is no best solution, only learning more and better Python. Good luck!
Keep Calm and Code in Python!
