One of the promises that WebAssembly makes is to allow us to use whatever language we choose to develop for the web, although this remains a distant goal. The philosophy behind Brython, at least as far as Python 3 is concerned, is why wait?
Lots of live code examples and a gallery of applets demonstrate how it all works. It is even possible to use Brython to write a native Android app in Python. Asynchronous functionality is available, although you must use Brython’s
async module instead of python
Most common Python keywords and behaviors are supported, including
Please note that the Jiphy project has not been updated since mid-2020. Jiphy should be considered strictly experimental until work resumes.
$ special symbol used by jQuery works as is in RapydScript, and arrays can support both the
.append (Python) methods. However, the project has not been updated since May 2021, so it should be considered experimental.
Like Brython, which uses some of the same underlying technology, PyScript allows Python to run directly in the browser. PyScript uses the Pyodide project, a Python runtime ported to WebAssembly, to make the browser a more hospitable environment for running Python as a web scripting language.
print() The command can be used to write output directly to a web page, the same way you would print output to the console.
PyScript also provides ways to work with packages available in the PyPI Package Index, although not all of them may behave as expected. For example, PyScript still doesn’t work with the
fetch method to perform the same tasks.
One of the biggest advantages of Transcrypt is the automatic access to the document object model. If you try to access
document.getElementById in Python, for example, the converted code will use the
