Django Apps rock


There's been some chat on mailing lists and conferences about the reusability of apps and about how reusable apps suck.

So here's in defence of plain old normal non-reusable Django apps. The ones that probably power most of your current awesome Django sites. They rock. Easy to write and build out a site with. Django apps deserve credit for being so rapid to develop and having a very small set of boilerplate and required code (just a models).

So before people come up with schemes for making apps reusable, please remember, we've got a great solution for building apps now. Let's not ruin the speed and simplicity of Django app whilst in pursuit of improved reuse.
