Introduction to Anvil

Anvil Essentials part 1 of 4.

Watch me build a secure, multi-user web app, complete with database storage and user accounts, using nothing but Python.

By the time we’re done, you’ll know the essential parts of Anvil, and how to use them to create web apps in Python.


Build a News Aggregator

Anvil Essentials part 2 of 4.

Learn how to store and edit data in a database, by building a simple “CRUD” (Create/Read/Update/Delete) app to store news articles.


Storing and Displaying Data

Anvil Essentials part 3 of 4.

Build a To-Do list app, and learn how to store data in Anvil.

Anvil’s data bindings make data-driven applications easy!


Multi-User Applications with Anvil

Anvil Essentials part 4 of 4.

Anvil makes multi-user applications easy. In this video, we’ll expand on the To-Do list example, and turn it into a secure, multi-user application that can be posted publicly on the internet.


Turning a Jupyter notebook into a web app

In this video tutorial, we take an ML model in a Jupyter notebook, and put a web front end on it so anyone can use it, using the Anvil Uplink.

Displaying Data In Tables

You’re writing a web app. It’s likely your data is stored in tables. It should be easy to show it to the user in a table too. Data Grids allow you to do just that.

The Easiest Way to Build HTTP APIs in Python

As we build up this REST API, step by step, we’ll learn common patterns used by many HTTP APIs: Returning records from your database, authentication, accepting parameters, URL parameters, updates, and deletes. Let’s get started!

Running tasks in the background

Run tasks in the background while your main app carries on running.

This tutorial walks you through building a web crawler to index and search an entire website.

You could also use Background Tasks to do some housekeeping or heavy processing behind the scenes, download large files, email a large mailing list. Anything that needs to run for a long time!


App Secrets

Protect your sensitive information – API credentials, database passwords, sensitive user information, and more – by storing it encrypted in your Anvil app.

Learn how to use encryption with the App Secrets service.


Customising the Material Design theme

Tweaking the look and feel of Anvil apps can be as simple as modifying your colour palette and as powerful as defining your own CSS rules. We take a look at the default Anvil app theme, Material Design, discussing what it offers and how to customise it.

Accepting Payment with Stripe

Get paid using Anvil.

Learn how to take online payments using Anvil and Stripe.


Using Microsoft Services with Anvil

Authenticate users using Microsoft Single Sign On.

Restrict access to users in your own Azure Active Directory tenant.

Use Microsoft Azure REST APIs with a few lines of code.


Using code outside Anvil

In this video, we’ll learn how to write programs outside Anvil, and call them from your Anvil app, using the Uplink API.

In this video, we use the Uplink to control a Raspberry Pi from the web.


Build a Feedback Form

Build a feedback form, and learn the techniques fundamental to building any Anvil app.

Build your UI, write client-side and server-side Python, store data in a database and deploy your app. All in only 10 minutes!
