Hello! This article presents an open-source Django Template crafted with authentication, database on top of a pixel-perfect Bootstrap 5 design. Django Soft UI Design can be downloaded directly from Github and used for a commercial project or simply for eLearning activities. For newcomers, Django is a leading web framework actively supported and versioned by programming experts using a batteries-included concept. Thank for reading!

Designed for those who like bold elements and beautiful websites, Soft UI Design is made of hundreds of elements, designed blocks, and fully coded pages.

Probably the most easier way to compile the product locally or deploy it in production is to use the pre-built Docker configuration.

โœจ Step #1 - Clone/Download sources from Github (public repository)

$ git clone https://github.com/app-generator/django-soft-ui-design.git
$ cd django-soft-ui-design

โœจ Step #2 - Start in Docker

$ docker-compose up --build 
Django Soft UI Design - Start in Docker

Once the above commands are executed, we should be able to access the app in the browser, register new users, authenticate and interact with the UI.

For production, we might want to serve compressed HTML pages and this case can be achieved pretty easily with a small update:

  • Added django-htmlmin to the project requirements
  • Update Project settings to enable the compression
