ViUR html5

html5 is a DOM-abstraction layer and API that is used to create client-side Web-Apps running in the browser and written in Python.


This API and framework is used to implement HTML5 web-apps using the Python programming language. The framework is an abstraction layer for a DOM running in Pyodide, a Python 3 interpreter compiled to web-assembly.

It provides

  • class abstraction for all HTML5-DOM-elements, e.g. html5.Div()
  • a built-in HTML parser and executor to generate DOM objects from HTML-code
  • helpers for adding/removing classes, arrange children, handling events etc.

The most prominent software completely established on this library is ViUR-vi, the visual administration interface for ViUR-based applications.

Look here for a short introduction about features and usage.

flare is now available, which supersedes this library and provides a self-contained version of its core components, but with the aspect to provide a full web-app development framework. Both libraries, flare & html5, will be held synchronous, except the dialogs and ignite-related stuff.
