Your article is a really great introduction to Django development but I believe that you are mistaken about the template engine. The default template engine in Django is the Django Template Engine. It is, in some respects, similar to Jinja but it is not Jinja. However, Jinja is an optional template engine that can be used and that Django provides built in support for.

From what I can tell you do not provide any explanation about switching to Jinja nor do you appear to be using any Jinja specific markup in your templates.

If you want information on how to configure Django to use Jinja you should see these documents:
