Tetra: A Full Stack Web Framework That Doesn't Make You Write Everything Twice - Episode 369

To reduce the friction involved in writing and maintaining a full application Sam Willis created Tetra, a framework built on top of Django that embeds the Javascript logic into the Python context where it is used. In this episode he explains his design goals for the project, how it has helped him build applications more rapidly, and how you can start using it to...
