Invent with PyScript

Level:
intermediate
Duration:
30 minutes

Abstract

PyScript is a platform for Python in the browser, enabled by web-assembly. It brings the rich ecosystems of CPython and MicroPython to the web. Invent is a PyScript based app creation framework with complementary browser based tooling and is designed to be easy to learn and use, no matter if you’re a beginner or expert.

This talk introduces Invent, explains how it was built on top of PyScript and describes the design and architecture decisions made to ensure Python and the browser complement each other. Invent apps work anywhere a browser works and by the end of this presentation you’ll be armed with all you need to know to build, deploy and extend native Python based applications running atop PyScript on all manner of platforms (mobile, tablet, laptop, desktop, web-enabled fridge, car, point of sale terminal… you name it, so long as there’s a browser!).

This talk will be fast-paced, technical, creative, full of possibilities, may include geese 🪿, and will be a lot of geeky fun.

By the end you’ll ask yourself, “I wonder what I can invent?” and go create cool stuff in minutes.
