[50% Off] Django + React : Build a Location-Based real estate website Course CouponUpdated: 2022-04-21T03:45:35Z by saadmerie
Duration: 3.0 hours
In this course, Learn & practice React, Django, Django Rest Framework, GeoDjango, Material UI, React-Leaflet, PostGIS
In this project-based course, we will build a location-based real estate website. It is going to be a full stack web application with Django powering the backend and React Js the frontend.
We are going to build the frontend very fast by using Material UI which is a very easy and intuitive React library for building UI components. Throughout the course we will get to use lots of Material UI components that we will easily style.
We are then going to build the API with Django Rest Framework (DRF) and we are going to make requests to the API with React.
We are also going to make our PostgreSQL database be spatially aware by adding the PostGIS extension to it. So, on top of making regular queries to the database, we are also going to make spatial queries (geometric information such as distance).
We are also going to cover user authentication with the Djoser library. We will get end users to add, delete or update property listings from the frontend. We are also going to handle both client-side errors and server-side errors in the forms.
Once we are done building the website on our local machines, we will then deploy it with Digital Ocean and Namecheap. During deployment, we are going to:
Push our project to GitHub
Get domain names for the backend and frontend
Setup a mailbox in “private email”
Setup an SSL certificate
Install and setup Nginx and Gunicorn
Store media file in the cloud with Digital Ocean spaces
