I am relatively new to Django and would like to adopt best practices as much a possible. Having used Flask quite a bit I’d like to use jinja2 though. Although jinja2 is easy to use with Django, to use it to render Django forms in a way it can be used with bootstrap is not.
What is the recommended way to solve this?
- Not using Django Forms
- Using Crispy forms (needs a lot of extra code to get it right)
- Not using jinja2?
You’ll find it easier if you use Django templates rather than Jinja2. There are only a few differences between the two, you’re unlikely to notice the performance difference, and crispy forms will work with it.
I agree with Adam, just go with Django templates, this will make your life easier and you won’t have to jump through hoops when you use a contrib module that doesn’t have Jinja templates (99% don’t).
Thanks guys, I’ll follow your advice
