Yep, that's what I was curious about.

So far all my Python web work has been in Flask.

I can use my simple IBMi ODBC wrapper class for everything I need and create methods for my query/insert/update/delete actions to keep all that code out of the main app code.

My bad, yesterday I missed the first part of your question (it looked like part of the headers).

Do you have to use the ORM in Django? To use an analogy, I'd say it's like the logic cycle in RPG/400. It's there whether you use it or not.

The Django ORM maps the DB to fields in the code and the UI. If you're asking about injecting your own DB access into the ORM, but still using the ORM to map columns -> fields, I don't know the answer because I've never tried.
