For a beginning developer it can be intimidating to be tasked with offlining a Django website. To ease your worry I will detail a design idea that you should understand to make your journey less painful.
A good question to ask yourself is what will I be losing when there is no connection to my Django back-end?
Suggestions to do this:
- They have done a great job matching common Django coding conventions that make it easy and fast to implement alongside existing Django models.
- This Django app will allow you to easily create a very powerful REST API over which you can create entries in your existing Django database.
- there is a long list of these, find one that looks promising for your use case and have fun. Obviously you’ll want one that you can use to easily represent your Django models and that can easily speak REST to save it’s models.
This is a good start for creating an offline version of a Django website, There is a lot more you’ll learn if you take on this task but this should get you going.
Quick note about persisting over REST: you’ll save your self a lot of headache if you can remove any hard relationship dependencies in pertinent models.
