Thank you.
I have used templates but not the default one from Django, an external one. And yes the templates are still being used.
I have a question for you, I have not used react with Django so far, How is the building process working out for you?

Well I'm still looking for that first job, no real world production experience yet. But this is what I did in my project.

You could have the front and the back in completely different repositories, but I wanted to have them in the same one to make version control easy and consistent through the entire project.

I run django-admin startproject project_name

And then inside the root folder I run npx create-react-app fronted

They are 2 totally decoupled independent projects in the same repository and they only talk through RestFul API requests

Nice, it sounds pretty neat too. I am going to give react a try.
