I was helping someone on the #django IRC channel today, and he/she hadn't yet understood how functionality can be divided into separate apps.

I took a look at the contents of the Django documentation and the 1st edition of the Django Book, but couldn't find anything appropriate there to suggest for reading. I also found it non-trivial to explain app layout quickly.

The specific problem of the person in IRC had to do with multiple sites using common functionality. I pointed them to the sites framework, but in addition to that they need a basic understanding of the app system.

mattmcc pointed out the blog post at

I suggest that app layout be explained in the documentation with examples.

It's not clear what to do with this other than continue to write more and better docs.
