How we use python for frontend (browser) at Coverfox

Amit Upadhyay (~amitu)




Coverfox is python at heart company. It saddened us to see the collective javascript losing their wits at the mass hysteria of backbone, oh no, angular, oh no, react and trillion npm packages. We decided to stuff all that, decided to write front-end in python instead.

This talk focuses on how we went about it, what we learnt in the process, what works what does not.


Only basic understanding of python is required. Even that too not much. If you live in javascript, but are not completely satisfied it is the best thing in the whole universe, you may want to attend this talk.

Is this in some way related to brython. Would love to know more about the frontend framework. Can you please add more details and/or slides to this

Amit Singh Sethi (~dusual)

Not brython, rapydscript (more precisely rapidscript-ng). Rapydsrcipt gives us language, we have created a library on top of it. This library is not yet open source, some major restructuring is happening as we are in experimental stage, and using this only for some internal dashboards. But it looks promising.

Slides are not yet ready, most likely they will only be ready right before the presentation :-p

Amit Upadhyay (~amitu)

Can we have some links to your slides or a general structure, some thing that can be used to be put on the projector so audience can follow along.

Please upload the slides/structure so they can be reviewed before 12th feb.

Have you given any talks(including this one) before? Any experience of public speaking? It's not a requirement for doing the talk but would definitely help us gauge the experience level. We suggest going through the presentation least once in front of a small audience to get some experience if you have not already.

Akshay Arora (~akshayaurora)

I do not have the time to work on the slides before 12th Feb.

I have given bunch of talks in local meet ups in Mumbai, and one at Gophercon India last year.

Amit Upadhyay (~amitu)

Sure, there is a scheduled meetup on 19th of this month we can give this a shot at that time.
