Python is elegant and simple. Python is a programming language that is devoid of symbols that slow down the writing of code.
We forget the braces to encompass the functions, the ampersand and the vertical bar for the logical operators and, above all, the PHP arrow to access the properties of a class. However, we are careful not to forget the indentation which makes it possible to identify the scope of the declarations. What should be remembered is that these features greatly increase the readability of the code, which would practically allow a neophyte to find their way around.
- It is advised to build lines of maximum 79 characters;
- Class declarations must be preceded by two line breaks;
- The indentation is characterized by four spaces;
The code thus becomes more human and the programmer more efficient.
The simplicity of Python also comes from its modular approach. Indeed, when programming in Python, we like to separate the types of elements between them to centralize the information. Thus, we are very close to the MVC (Model – View – Controller) method and, by the same token, to the creation of a website in an effective collaborative approach. In addition, the modularity of Python makes it easy to reuse code of any kind. In other words, a script can be transferred from one project to another. All you have to do is build our modules properly and import the useful elements for your new project.
It would be counterproductive to develop websites with Python, without a good framework, like Django for example. This framework, “for perfectionists with deadlines”, could not have been designed with a better programming language than Python. Django follows the MVC pattern. It uses the DRY principle, which boils down to avoiding redundancy in scripts and encourages the creation of reusable applications. The marriage between these two technologies therefore becomes a mixture of efficiency, consistency and success.
In closing, it is interesting to know that the name of this framework is inspired by a gypsy guitarist of the last century, Django Reinhardt. With his amputated hand, he managed to develop a new technique, allowing him to remain a virtuoso. On the other hand, Python comes from Monty Python, an English comedy group from the end of the last century. Like what, at Nixa, we make technological choices that make business useful!
