the thing is that my website will have users and they will have to log in and register, and they will be able to post things inside the website, so I need the server side as well to save the data, i think Django is Avery good tool indeed but it would be great if there would be something easier for my first project

I think it will be easier to use Flask for your first project

I would disagree since when using Flask you need to add/implement most of the things (ORM, auth, forms, mail, admin dashboard, etc) yourself. When in Django it's all included and all you need to worry about is developing. Not saying one is better than the other. Just for the projects where you sure you need at least a DB and auth mechanism, Django suits better IMO.
