Django is a high-level Python web framework that was developed by a fast-moving online-news operation to meet the stringent twin challenges of newsroom deadlines and the needs of web developers. It provides an excellent basis to build e-commerce websites because it can be deployed speedily and it responds quickly to changes due to its ability to handle content problems. Django, with its proven strengths, is all you need to build powerful e-commerce applications with a competitive edge.

This book covers the basics of an e-commerce platform such as product catalogs, shopping carts, and payment processing. Through this book, readers will be able to enhance their applications by adding a fully-functional search engine, generate PDF-based reports, add interactivity to the user-interface, sell digital goods with micropayments, and manage deployment and maintenance tasks.

Using this book, developers will learn how to employ Django Models and Views to create a product catalog, build a flexible categorization system to organize products, and will be shown how to create fully-featured search engines to index and categorize a product catalog. It will also help them simplify the development process using community projects like django-registration and django-profiles.

Packed with code examples and configuration hints for related web technologies, this book is ideal for developers who are familiar with the basics of developing in Django.
