Vue-Django - 500 GitHub stars
500 GitHub stars and counting … ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
On my dated open-source page: code.md.engineer, the first project I have quoted is VueDjango; a full-featured Webpack setup of a VueJS 2.x app with hot-reload, lint-on-save, unit testing & css extraction integrated into a Django 2.x application.
It has over 500 stars on GitHub now! 🔥
Python is my main tool of trade as a Software/ Data Engineer. In a previous project, I challenged myself to use Django and VueJS hand-in-hand. It was a photo-editing application (Don’t mind the missing image on the homepage, postimg.org is no longer up. I use imgur these days 😉) Here is its codebase. I had worked on another application with the same technical requirements: VueJS and Django: not-by-might. The only difference between the two is that I used semantic UI on one (the former) and Bootstrap on another (the latter).
Back to vue-django. This project has three variations:
- Django 1.* - Vue 1.*
- Django 1.* - Vue 2.*
- Django 2.* - Vue 2.*
Since this project was a fork from vuejs-templates/webpack I decided to separate it so that I can track stars and forks. I looked forward to handling issues that are raised by people using this starter-pack and it proved successful.
Since then the project has had:
- 500+ stars
- 70+ forks
- 5 closed issues (user created)
- An improved boilerplate based on VueDjango that includes CI/CD (Gitlab pipeline), Docker/Docker-Compose, Nginx, and PostgreSQL

Vue-Django is on OpenCollective (should anyone want to back it or support the project)
I’m honoured. Let’s keep up the good work 💪.
