We all usually have a CI server that runs our tests and verifies the python syntax and some other common programming errors using pylint. I was wondering... is there any security-focused static code analyzer that can find (security) bugs in my django project?

For this project we're already doing peer review of the source code we commit/push, but realized that it would be nice to have "something more" to cover more ground on the security side.

actually what kind of security bugs , i never think about security when i am using django because as far as i know framework itself forces you to write secure code

such as xss, CSRF, sql injection

Yes, I know that the framework helps you write secure code, but you can still add SQL injections by using the raw() method of the ORM, XSS by using |safe, etc.

In small projects with skilled Django developers, it should be fine... but when the project grows you want to make sure things are safe.
