djangosite adds to a Django project the concept of "the application running on this site". It defines a Site class and expects an instance of it in settings.SITE.

This brings an additional level of encapsulation to Django. A Site is "something between an app and a project", it is a kind of "master app" or "project template". Note that it has nothing to do with Django's SITE_ID setting. More about this vocabulary problem in What is a software application?.

An immediate benefit of djangosite is to implement a server startup signal for Django

djangosite is also the foundation for projects like North and the Lino framework.
