Write desktop and web apps in pure Python.
You can use Flexx to create (cross platform) desktop applications, web applications, and (if designed well) export an app to a standalone HTML document. It also works in the Jupyter notebook.
Flexx has a modular design, consisting of a few subpackages, which can also be used by themselves:

There is a demo server at http://flexx1.zoof.io (it might not always be on).
The primary motivation for Flexx is the undeniable fact that the web (i.e. browser technology) has become an increasingly popular method for delivering applications to users, also for (interactive) scientific content.
The purpose of Flexx is to provide a single application framework to create desktop applications, web apps, and (hopefully soon) mobile apps. By making use of browser technology, the library itself can be relatively small and pure Python, making it widely available and easy to use.
Flexx requires Python 2.7 or Python 3.2+ and also works on pypy. Further, it needs the tornado library (pure Python). For running desktop apps, it is recommended to have Firefox installed.
To install use any of:
- conda install flexx -c conda-forge
- pip install flexx
- Clone the repo and add it to your PYTHONPATH, or python setup.py install.
Flexx makes use of the liberal 2-clause BSD license. See LICENSE for details.
