Ohai is currently using Django 1.7. The django project is currently on version 1.10. I think there may be a decent amount of changes to get this updated but am unsure right now. I will update here once I know more.
Since I made this ticket back in March of 2017, Django has already released v1.11 and v2.0. There are some useful things in 2.0 that may make it worth moving to, especially the change in URL patterns. However, most of the recent books and documentation you will find are going to be on 1.11.
