Vue-Django, 500+ GitHub stars

500 GitHub stars and counting… ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

On my GitHub page, the first pinned project 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, 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.*

It's made such that by following these steps, you have a project similar to what is hosted here and you are ready to go.

Since then the project has had:

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 💪.
