Turn your Django project into an iOS app

An iOS app template to wrap your Django application with native integration.

Hybrid iOS apps with Hotwire

Simple is better than complex. Hybrid apps help startups iterate faster, deploy code on the server, then see the changes on all devices

Native Authentication

We've already done the hard work of implementing authentication so users can login, signup from native views.

JavaScript Bridge

With Javascript Bridge, you can send messages between iOS and the Webview.

Push Notifications

Push notifications and device management are already implemented so you can easily send notifications straight to iOS users.

Tab Bar

A tab bar makes an app feel native on iOS. You can customize the tabs by editing the config file.

Path Configuration

You can define the hybrid app behavior with path config file, which can help you convert the web page to native view step by step.
