You must be talking about Mailman 3, where the web ui and archiver are implemented as Django applications.

Please note that neither Postorius (web ui) nor HyperKitty (archiver) are *required* components so if you don’t like them, you don’t need to deploy them.  Core is the only required piece and if you’re comfortable to write your own clients against Core’s REST API, you can do so using whatever technology you want, since it’s just HTTP+JSON.  You can augment the functionality currently available via REST with shell access.
