In this python tutorial, we are going to use a powerful python web framework and are going to design the ToDo web application from scratch. Python is a high-level general-purpose language that is used for various purposes like web development, game development, machine learning, data science, etc. Websites like Quora, Google, Dropbox, Youtube, etc are developed using the Python programming language. By developing this Django project, you will understand the MVC framework (Model View Controller) which is used in most of the web development projects. You will also develop hands-on experience on Django, a popular Python web development framework.
Skyfi Labs gives you the easiest way to learn and build this project.

ToDo web app using Django project implementation
First, download and install python from the official website. After installing python, open CMD in windows, Terminal on Linux, and Mac. Now type the following command to install Django
pip install Django
Django uses MVT (Model View Template) which is different from MVC (Model View Controller). Let's briefly look into it.
Model: It sets up the schema for the database. Using Django’s Object-Relational mapping, you can declare field types, fields, and other extra data.
View: Using view you can retrieve some results from the database or manipulate some data. Basically, it expects a request and response.
Template: It is the plain HTML code with Django’s Template Language in it.
URL: It helps you to connect the view to a URL.
Admin: This helps you to change the view of models in Django
Now we will create the ToDo application by creating a project on Django using the below command:
django-admin.py startproject todoapp
After creating the project create the application using the following command:
manage.py startapp todolist
After creating the project you can run and view it in the browser using the URL. Now set up the database. Django supports a wide range of databases such as MySQL, SQLite, PostgreSQL, and oracle.
To create categories type the URL in the browser and log in with the required details. After logging in with the help of the Django admin interface you can add categories like General, work, personal, school, and many others.
