In the installed app list add the app name
In DIRS add ‘templates’ and create a templates folder in the root directory
from django.contrib import adminfrom django.urls import path,includeurlpatterns = [path('admin/',,path('',include('example.urls'))]
from django.urls import path,includefrom . import viewsurlpatterns = [path('',views.getdata,name="getdata")]

You can override __str__ method inside the model class to get more readable form of the objects
def __str__(self):return self.description
from django.db import models# Create your models here.class Weather(models.Model):place = models.CharField(max_length=250)description=models.CharField(max_length=250)def __str__(self):return self.description
Now I am leaving the design up to you add some css if you want
  1. We can interact with databases without writing SQL instead we can use python classes.
  2. We can dynamically send data to html with “Jinja” .
  3. Built-in robust admin panel.
  4. csrf_token for added security.
  5. Django comes batteries included.
