Writing JSON based REST APIs in Pure Django without using DRF or tastypie.

I was seeing a lot of posts on Facebook, Reddit, LinkedIn, etc about how people are struggling with writing APIs in Django. Moreover, introducing DRF on top of the Django to write APIs, was, kind of, overwhelming for beginners. So I decided to write a post on the same for absolute beginners keeping in mind that that they have ZERO experience with Django.

In this article, I'm explaining how you can write pure JSON based RESTful APIs in Django without depending on any other third party library or framework such as DRF, Tastypie, etc.

If you are a beginner and read this post, I'd appreciate if you provide me with feedback to add or explain things in more details to improve this article.
