Difference between Django and Flask:
Django provides its own ORM (object-relational mapping) and uses data models, while Flask doesn’t have any data models at all. Data models allow developers to link database tables with classes in a programming language so they can work with models in the same way as database references. Why does Flask have no data model? Because the Flask philosophy is different from the Django philosophy. It bundles everything together, while Flask is more modular.
The main difference between Django and Flask, that Django provides a full-featured Model–View–Controller framework. Its aim is to simplify the process of website development. It relies on less code, reusable components, and rapid development. Flask, on the other hand, is a microframework based on the concept of doing one thing well. It doesn’t provide an ORM and comes with only a basic set of tools for web development.
Flask applications are mostly single-page applications (SPAs). It’s a good choice for small and medium-sized sites such as forums and personal blogs. Django is perfectly suited for large projects like e-commerce sites and CMSs.
