I've been building https://builtwithdjango.com and learning how to integrate Stripe.
First, on my job, on a public institution (scientific also), i'm developing a website to control and monitoring the status of a GNSS (GPS) network, the scheme of all the network and equipment, particular status, etc.
Is not published yet because i'm working on details, and maybe only will be disposable by the internal VPN
The other, is for a personal project with friends about teach technology to common people.
And the plan is build a platform to support education plans, not only teach programming, also workshops or courses of any subjects.
So that, i learned a lot since around six years playing with django and now i think i can manage well.
As with any cool project nowadays, CodeSnippetSearch is powered by neural networks (six in fact - one for each programming language). The project is open-sourced and you can read about the implementation details here: https://github.com/novoselrok/codesnippetsearch
It's way too advanced for my current skill level but is certainly I am working towards. Nice job!
We started on Django 1.6 and I’ll admit: we liked it so much we stuck with that version for 5 years (ha ha).
Earlier this year we did the mythic trek to Python3 and are enjoying the all the new Django goodies.
August is working full time on Cronitor but for me it’s still technically a “side project” — for now!
Edit: sorry for the dupe! August already posted here.
Can you share anything about how that upgrade journey went? What are some of the newer features that have been helpful for you? Were those features you knew would be helpful, or were you happily surprised?
We were excited to have Django Migrations (So long, South!) and honestly it's great to have access to current docs again.
We did have a snag with memory leaks in a threadpool in one of our non-django Python APIs. It was actually our worst outage in 5 years because it failed several hours after we deployed and we were no longer staring at our graphs.
(Maybe I can get August to write a blog post about how he accidentally sent a million emails to our personal inboxes while trying to clean that up)
It's still quite rough around the edges, mostly due to me being demotivated for not having a good way to host it. Now solved with linode+dokku which I am super happy with.
This is a site i have wanted for decades and I Googled after it every year for a decade before I realized I could build it myself with the data from wikidata.

Here's the product page: https://www.feldroy.com/products/two-scoops-of-django-3-x
Also working on a book writing app where the file generating service backend is monitored by a Django project. Launches soon!
(Though after a very positive developer experience working in Ruby on Rails when I worked at Triplebyte, I'd probably lean toward RoR for a new project.)
I was planning to use Transistor.FM for hosting, but now will certainly consider using Wisecast to support a fellow Django maker.
I connect online articles into discussion graphs and intersperse the top tweets about them. There are feeds that filter the discussions in different ways (exchanges among top authors, most discussed articles). It's also possible to see a specific discussion graph in its entirety, e.g. the discussion around Marc Andreessen's "It's Time to Build" essay: https://www.disqors.com/discussions/36672
We turned a 5- to 10-hour process into one that takes 10 minutes!
The app itself is in private beta at this point. We also rely on the software internally while externally offering a service where lawyers send us their briefs and we show them the errors that the software finds :)
It started as a simple website monitoring product and evolved from there. It enables customers to monitor websites, REST APIs and cron jobs on the same platform. I also added status page functionality (e.g. https://status.webgazer.io) some time ago.
I have a day job but I keep building and hustling at the side. We live off of paychecks from our day jobs but live for our side projects, don't we? :P
Do you have a demo link? Would love to check it out!
It was a side project from March 2014 to March 2020, but as of last month it’s now my full-time job!
Just FYI, the CSS for your homepage appears to be intermittently 404'ing. Could be a failed release and your static manifest being out of date on one or more of your running backend processes – we've had this before with Django.
Thanks for calling that out!
Watching Cronitor grow the past few years, and seeing all the ways that people rely on it today, has been extremely rewarding. Working on it full-time means I can finally tackle some of the bigger projects that I've wanted to do, but haven't been able to due to time constraints. In other words, I get to make it even more useful now!
The public, user facing data input, and production deployment, is taking the other 18 months :)
You know the saying, it is 90% done, now we only have to do the other half.
But I recently restarted. As of yesterday the app actually runs on AWS Beanstalk, although with its attached RDS. I have a coworker now that’s really into cocktails so I feel like I am building the site for him.
Django - channels - celery
Another project to be launched soon that uses a similar stack. Just waiting on stripe activation.
Sorry, didn't want to criticize what seems to be a cool service but I thought you should know!
I'll try to add a way to switch locale to English or do you think it's better to keep just English as the only language till I can get other languages translated professionally?
Edit: Added language dropdown on the top-right of the landing page.
Edit: It still appears to be an issue - I'll post an update here after I fully fixed it.
No, I don't use any framework (still haven't had the time to learn any) - it's just ES5.
The project currently serves as the main site for PuzzlehuntCMU, a group from Carnegie Mellon that writes and runs their own puzzlehunts, but the point of the project in general now-a-days is for any group that wants to run a puzzlehunt to be able to stand up a copy of the server and just go.
We recently just hosted a 24 hour, 1400 person, 400 team (5x the max number of users we've ever seen before) event a few weeks ago and thankfully everything held up fine.
The Django project is open source here (https://github.com/judymou/spacedb) but most of my ongoing work is on the visualization rather than the Django side here (https://github.com/typpo/spacekit/).
slow and steady wins the race I guess...
I challenged myself to make the operating costs as low-cost as possible. It costs $1/mo (for the Twilio number) and a couple cents per page.
Built with Django and Gatsby (the latter migration is still work-in-progress).
Note taking, simplified. From idea to go-live in seconds.
Currently developing an API to create a mobile app with Flutter + Django!
Yes, I am aware of the problem you are referring to. I've known about it for some time, but I can't do anything about it. I just don't understand why the images don't show up.
I've searched everywhere, but couldn't find the solution. I fanyone here knows how to solve it, I'd be forever grateful.
Here's a screenshot to show what I started disabling: https://i.imgur.com/BinJqAD.png

- A Disc Golf auction/news site.

Do you have a landing page? Or is it only possible to login / register?
Like @encoderer and Cronitor.io, we also stuck with Django 1.6 for several years! YAY! Turns out the jump from 1.6 to 1.7 was a painful experience, but we're finally on the modern.... 1.11. Yeah, we're not getting rid of our Python 2.7 customers for some time (still trying to get some off of Python 2.6). Enterprise software development is a different sort of beast.
Our https://rbcommons.com service is Review Board as a SaaS, and uses Stripe. Curious to hear what you're doing with Stripe integration on your end! We've been making heavy use of it ourselves.
We've also done some crazy, fairly-complex, maybe-niche stuff in Django, and built these out into some libraries you might find interesting to browse through:
1) Djblets (https://github.com/djblets/djblets) — A big ol' utility library for Django that provides:
* Foundations for loadable extensions (just like browser extensions) for Django projects
* Support for defining flexible integrations for third-party services (Slack, etc.)
* Avatar support (gravatars, file uploads, URL-based avatars, and custom backends)
* Datagrids (with user column customization)
* A foundation for REST APIs
* Dynamic site settings
* Stuff to make privacy/PII/consent a first-class citizen in codebases
* And just a ton of other things that we found useful in Review Board and wanted to make more widely-available.
2) Django Evolution (https://github.com/beanbaginc/django-evolution) — A precursor to Django's migrations support (and the reason we were on Django 1.6 for so long — the in-development version cooperates with migrations now). We inherited and maintain this project. It provides an alternate way to specify database schema changes, and has the benefit of just being far faster to apply migrations, through a built-in optimizer. This significantly reduces upgrade times for large installs (super important for many of our Review Board customers).
All open source, and might be interesting to look at, who knows. We've built a lot up over the years (we started by writing code against Django pre-1.0 SVN checkouts), and I still recommend it.
