Anvil: All web, all Python

Episode #138, published Wed, Nov 15, 2017, recorded Tue, Nov 7, 2017

Have you noticed that web development is kind of hard? If you've been doing it for a long time, this is easy to forget. It probably sounds easy enough to

Pick a server side framework (Pyramid or Django?)
Create a new project (pcreate, cookiecutter,, …)
Install some client side dependencies with NPM
Install some server side dependencies with pip
Create a database (and maybe even a server install)!
Connect the app to the db (securely)
Pick a front-end framework (Bootstrap or Foundation?)
Integrate it
Whoa: Now you write code
Ugh, time to deploy

Oh wait, that doesn't sound so easy.

What if the web was easy as old school VB 6 with drag-drop and double-click for event handlers, but with Python of course.

With Anvil, you'll see it really is that quick to get started! Meet Meredydd Luff to tell us all about it.
