Web Development with Python and only Python



Loading video...

If you’re a Python developer, you can build full-stack web applications without needing any HTML, CSS or Javascript. Seriously.

Anvil is a free online web development IDE that allows you to create web apps entirely in Python. If you can write Python - you can be a full-stack web developer.

Run Python in the browser

You can quickly and easily build user interfaces by dragging and dropping components onto your page.

Every Anvil component in your UI is a Python object, which can be modified with client-side Python. When components raise events, they call Python functions in the client-side code.

Run Python on the server

With simple Python function calls, you can pass information from the server to the client. The @anvil.server.callable decorator allows you to easily define a function on the server that can be used in client code with anvil.server.call. There’s no need to set up routing or endpoints.

With Anvil, you also get access to a full database system, making it easy to store data for your web apps.

Easily deploy your app

When you create your web app, it’s already deployed at a private URL. With a few clicks more, you can publish your app via a public URL. It’s that easy - you don’t need to do anything else to get your apps running.
