Django documentation

Django internals

Documentation for people hacking on Django itself. This is the place to go if you’d like to help improve Django, learn or learn about how Django works “under the hood”.

Warning

Elsewhere in the Django documentation, coverage of a feature is a sort of a contract: once an API is in the official documentation, we consider it “stable” and don’t change it without a good reason. APIs covered here, however, are considered “internal-only”: we reserve the right to change these internals if we must.
