Will PyScript replace Django? - What PyScript is and is not
09-22, 10:05–10:35 (Europe/Lisbon), Auditorium

PyScript hit the community like a storm after its announcement and becomes the top trending project on GitHub. It allows the running of Python on the browser. But there’s still some misunderstanding of it. Will it replace all web frameworks? What you can or cannot use PyScript for? Let’s find out.

In this talk, through some examples and demos of PyScript, we will see how to use it - just include the CDN URL, understand that it is a frontend-only Python that runs on the browser and learn the fact that it can work with javascript in conjunction.

After that, we will look at what is under the hood - Pyodide - which is a Python distribution for the browser. It is what is essential to power PyScript. We will discover what is the difference between using PyScript and Pyodide.

Finally, we will conclude what is already available in PyScirpt like which library you can run on PyScript and which ones are still yet to come. In the end, we will answer the question - Will PyScript replace Django?

This talk is for those who are curious about PyScript and the idea of running Python in the browser in general. We will assume no prior knowledge about it.
