Django apps are "pluggable" in that you can use them in multiple Django projects and/or distribute them. Django apps can be packaged and distributed for others to use in their Django projects. To see all the activated Django applications, look at the INSTALLED_APPS setting at the top of the file.

Each Django application consists of a Python package that follows a certain convention. Django comes with a utility that automatically generates the basic directory structure of an app (python startapp your_app).
