This is the second annual Django Developers Survey, conducted September – October, 2022, as a collaborative effort between the Django Software Foundation and JetBrains. To help us get a better idea of the current state of the framework and the ecosystem around it, 4,900 Django users and enthusiasts from 248 countries and regions took the survey.
The majority of users migrated to the latest version 4.1. Even though 2 new versions of Django were released last year, the older version 3.2 is still used by almost half of Django developers.
Django developers usually upgrade their projects with either every stable release (44%) or only with long-term support (LTS) (32%).
Django officially supports the following databases: PostgreSQL, SQLite, MySQL, MariaDB, and Oracle. Since last year’s survey, PostgreSQL has become even more popular, with shares increasing by 2 percentage points.
Only 6% of developers use databases that are not supported by Django. The database mentioned most often by these developers is MongoDB.
