Brython packages

New in version 3.7.5

A "Brython package" can be loaded in the HTML page to give access to importable modules. It consists in a file with the extension .brython.js containing the modules and packages to distribute; it is inserted by the usual syntax

<script src="http://anyhost/path/package_name.brython.js"></script>

Brython packages can be located on any server, making their deployment and usage very straightforward.

To generate a Brython package, use the CPython brython package. In the directory where the modules and packages to distribute stand, run:

brython-cli --make_package <package_name>

If the directory contains a file __init.py__, the modules will be relative to the package. For instance, if the directory structure is

__init__.py
dialog.py
menu.py

and we want to generate package widgets from this directory, then modules will be imported by

import widgets.dialog
from widgets import menu

If the directory does not contain __init__.py, the modules will be imported by their name. So if it only contains

dialog.py
menu.py

the modules will be imported by

import dialog
import menu
