Django-crispy-forms is an application that helps to manage Django forms. It allows adjusting forms’ properties (such as method, send button or CSS classes) on the backend without having to re-write them in the template. This solution is much more readable than plain Django forms and makes rendering the form template really easy?—?you can even limit it to one line of code. What’s more, django-crispy-forms can affect the appearance and style of the form by adding css classes to the the entire form as well as to individual fields, their labels, or buttons.

You were might have come across the popular packages such as django-allauth and django-registration. While these are great packages, they were too feature bloated for what I was going for in my minimum viable product (MVP). Furthermore, I started getting more frustrated as I googled because 9 out of every 10 articles were much older versions of Django. So, I decided to write my own backend after numerous hours reading the docs and coming to the realization that I could just do it myself. I am now sharing my GitHub repository below for anyone out there who might find it useful.

The Django admin is a very powerful tool. We use it for day to day operations, browsing data and support. As we grew some of our projects from zero to 100K+ users we started experiencing some of Django’s admin pain points?—?long response times and heavy load on the database.

There are plenty of introductory tutorials on Slack bots but all of them seem to be overly simplistic that are extremely difficult to extend. We at Pep AI, have been building Slack bots like Pep and AttendanceBot that do substantial backend logic processing and we totally understand how daunting it is to extend a simple hello world to a backend heavy bot. This tutorial aims to bridge the gap between a simple hello world code snippet and a functional real world bot.
