Speaking of Rails AJAX forms. It's quite trivial to submit Django ModelForm 
in Javascript AJAX request. It's a bit harder to have the customizable 
success action and to display the field validation errors via AJAX response.

I implemented AJAX viewmodels for that:

https://django-jinja-knockout.readthedocs.io/en/latest/viewmodels.html#ajax-actions

However it's the mixed traditional forms + AJAX approach, not the pure SPA. 
In pure SPA Django becomes the "data supplier" where most of the templates, 
forms, presentation is performed by Javascript framework.

So, the question is, whether the features of Django such as inline formsets 
and custom widgets are required, or should Django become the data store 
only.
