We at Shoop are proud of the fact that we are built with Python on top of the Django web framework – and we are not alone. Some of the most popular and widely used websites and applications that you use every day are built using these same open source tools. The success of these shows the power of the Python language and Django framework.

Shoop is written in Python and benefits greatly from its inherent capabilities. Python was chosen for its reliability, clean code, and for the enjoyment of the developers working with it. It is extremely powerful and yet fun to work with. Here are some highlights of the most famous sites that seem to agree (List provided by Hartmann Software Group).

    Impressive post.Thank you

  13. I do not comment, however after browsing through a lot of comments on 25
    of the Most Popular Python and Django Websites – Shuup – Complete Commerce Suite.
    I do have a few questions for you if you don’t mind.

    Could it be just me or do a few of the remarks appear like they are coming from brain dead folks?

    😛 And, if you are posting on other online sites, I would like to keep up with anything new you have to post.
    Would you make a list of all of your social networking sites like your linkedin profile,
    Facebook page or twitter feed?
