@snoot imagine django with full debug logging for everything, even the admin templates, logging every sql query that the ORM issues for reasons nobody will cop to, then litter your app code with debug and print statements, certainly don't use the recommended hierarchical naming mechanism so you can selectively disable them, wrap almost every function call in a bare try/except that squelches the info you actually want and you'll be about half way to the output of the code i'm grumbling about ๐Ÿ˜

@pho4cexa
That makes the Django codebases (yes, plural) I maintain for work sound elegant. You have my deepest sympathies. :)

@snoot let me guess, each one is on a different django version, and there's at least one that requires a special install of an end-of-life'd version of python ๐Ÿ˜ง

(Even if yours is a healthy well-kept deployment, thank you for the commiseration.) ๐Ÿ˜

@pho4cexa
One is version independent and is running a current version. I wrote it.

The other is the nightmare you describe. I inherited it. :)
