3-Way Web: Getting Javascript, C++ and Python to interact together all at once

3-Way Web: Getting Javascript, C++ and Python to interact together all at once

Due to internal constraints, we’ve had to replace our old C++ UI made of spaghetti code with a new Javascript UI. We’ve also had to create Python bindings to our C++ backend so that mathematicians, physicists and biologists could pilot and script our software.

But Python also makes a great backend for a web platform!

In this talk, we’ll explore how we can get those 3 languages to interact in an event-driven manner, and I’ll share what worked and didn’t work with our approach.
