- Neapolitan: "Neapolitan is a re-usable library for Django projects, that provides quick CRUD views for other applications.
It helps you get your models into your web output as quickly as possible, and includes base templates and re-usable template tags.
All kinds of applications need frontend CRUD functionality - but it’s not available out of the box with Django, and Python programmers often suffer while wrestling with the unfamiliar technologies and tools required to implement it. Neapolitan addresses that particular headache.
If you’ve ever looked longingly at Django’s admin functionality and wished you could have the same kind of CRUD access that it provides for your frontend, then Neapolitan is for you."
