Brian #3: 3 Things to Know Before Building with PyScript

  • by Braden Riggs
  • Package indentation matters
  • Local file access is possible.

        - numpy
        - pandas
        - paths:
            - /views.csv
    • DOM manipulation has interesting conventions
    • For buttons, you can include pys-onClick=”your_function” parameter to trigger python functions when clicked.
    • For retrieving user input from within the [HTML_REMOVED] tag document.getElementById(‘input_obj_id’).value can retrieve the input value.
    • And Finally pyscript.write(“output_obj_id”, data) can write output to a tag from within the [HTML_REMOVED] tag.
