I’ve been using React mainly, but started with Vue, Vue has allot more “extras” that are personal to it, so it kinda messes me up. I’ve focused on Django at times and python, but Py kinda seems more demand of DS or ML, Django seems great as a backend, but I haven’t seen allot of want for it.

I don’t like stying that much, because it can be anything.... what’s a good “connect” type of role? I’m getting the hang of JS, but I prefer Py. I recently used a CMS and I like how it’s integrated

Okay, then it you're after something modern, I'd give the MEVN stack or MERN stack a try. Both are using Javascript as backbone, differ only in the frontend framework they use.

  • (M) MongoDb as database
  • (E)Express.js as backend framework
  • (V/R) React / Vue respectively for the user interface
  • (N) Node.js as the runtime environment

Thank you, i haven’t used express yet, would a CMS be close to it?

Not quite, a cms is a whole piece of software while express is like a toolkit. You could however use express and e.g. mongoose (a mongodb driver) to build your own one.

Ok, but when would you need Mongobd instead of sqlite? I’m liking APIs now

You could possibly substitute them with one another, depending on what you prefer or require for your project.
In a nutshell, Sqlite stores data in predefined tables, whereas mongodb goes with collections ( json-like structure ). The second option is comparably messy as you create your structure on the go, but it's easier to scale and you won't need to write SQL queries to do data operations.
