Django is a high-level Python web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design. It simplifies the creation of complex, database-driven websites.
Setting up Django
Before you start using Django, make sure you have Python installed on your system. Then, you can install Django using pip:
pip install django
Creating a Django Project

python manage.py runserver
You can access your project at http://127.0.0.1:8000/.
