@S3abri do the official tutorial, it's a great place to start
if you don't have any web development experience or experience with Python it might be overwhelming though
does anyone here have experience integrating Angular with a Django project?

@kblicharski thanks for the valubale information, sadly I don't have that much experience in web development and just started to code in Python, I think it will be a bit hard

@S3abri I would suggest making a basic project in vanilla Python first then, and then learning the basics of web development (HTTP, CSS/HTML)

I know HTTP,CSS/HTML, JS, BOOTSTRAP, Java 😅 but I'm new to Python and the mvt architecture

you should be fine then @S3abri
Python is really easy to learn on the fly

Django has a lot of weird quirks, like how Django views are actually controllers and Django templates are actually views

what is it that you're using Django for?

you should be fine then
Django has good tutorials and amazing documentation
it helps a lot if you already have database experience, but I would still encourage you to make a basic project in Python first

Django is different enough from vanilla Python to be considered its own dialect of the language (in my opinion, anyways, there's a lot of stuff that has to be done or should be done in particular ways)

get really comfortable with OOP in Python, list comprehensions, and lambda functions
these are powerful features that will make lots of things considerably easier

Hello guys I got a problem I'm trying to implement a proxy server in python to operate 4 main operations
1- Listen to browser operations
2- Forward request to web server (web page)
3- Get response from web server (web page)

And I'm asking if someone has ever implemented such thing and can help me with his experience
