Flexx overviewΒΆ


The image above outlines the structure of Flexx. The event module provides a powerful property and event system that makes it easy to connect different parts of your application. Central to the event system is the Component class. The app module runs the server to which the web runtime connects (via a websocket). Further, it extends the Component class into the PyComponent and JsComponent classes. Objects of these classes live in Python and JavaScript respectively, but (can) have a representation on the other side, from which properties can be accessed, and actions be invoked. The ui module defines all widgets (based on JsComponent).

The external webruntime package is used to launch a browser looking like a dektop app. The pscript library is used throughout Flexx to compile Python code to JavaScript.
