Run JavaScript code from Python

Project description

Run JavaScript code from Python.

PyExecJS is a porting of ExecJS from Ruby. PyExecJS automatically picks the best runtime available to evaluate your JavaScript program, then returns the result to you as a Python object.

A short example:

>>> execjs.eval("'red yellow blue'.split(' ')")
['red', 'yellow', 'blue']
>>> ctx = execjs.compile("""
...     function add(x, y) {
...         return x + y;
...     }
... """)
>>> ctx.call("add", 1, 2)

PyExecJS supports these runtimes:

# Installation

$ pip install execjs

or

$ easy_install execjs
