Fairly often at Ionata, we have built hybrid Django and `$other-framework` applications. The Django application is for a completely custom booking process, or a online catering page, or a frontend view to the customers custom database. We then use something like Wordpress or Magento to provide a familiar blogging, CMS, or shop platform. In an ideal world, we would use the one framework for everything, but quite simply we do not want to reimplement Wordpress in Django when Wordpress already exists! Of course, then the problem of syncing templates across the two systems arises. Usually, the `$other-framework` runs the majority of the site, and defines a menu structure, footer links, etc. This content can change, so making a static template on the Django side is not a thing that can happen. By using `django-webtemplates`, you can define templates that live at a URI. Simply set up a dummy page in `$other-framework` that has all the required wrappings, and insert all the Django block hooks that you need. The template will be loaded from the external site just like any other template, and local templates can `{% extend %}` it as they desire.
