How to Deploy Django Apps in China? (A Step-by-Step Guide)

TLDR; This Django China tutorial provides you with a step-by-step solution to deploy and host your Django project in China.

What is Django?

Django is an open source web application framework developed based on Python. The Django framework not only provides a complete code directory structure, but also uses the structure model, view, and template. This makes the code easy to standardize during the development process. Among them, Django Admin provides an out-of-the-box back-end management system and is the “Go-To” by many Python developers and startups.

21YunBox provides a very simple Django deployment method in China. You can deploy on the 21YunBox in the Python environment.
