What is PyScript

Why did you develop the PyPlugger for PyScript plugin?

I developed the PyPlugger for PyScript plugin out of curiosity. I love a challenge and wanted to see if it would work on one of my websites as this is the very first plugin I’ve ever developed for WordPress. I also wanted to make it available free of charge as I am excited about learning Python and PHP, and I would like to contribute to the software development community beyond Twitter and GitHub. As a newbie freelance software developer, I thought this would also be a great opportunity to add experience to my resume by publishing a plugin to the mostly widely used content management system in the world, one that I’ve used for almost a decade as a hobbyist Web Administrator and Front-End Web Developer, which is WordPress.

Thanks a lot this works perfectly. I wanted to test running the Python REPL in a WordPress post, using the HTML code, but it threw errors: JsException(PythonError: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/lib/python3.10/site-packages/_pyodide/", line 421, in eval_code CodeRunner( File "/lib/python3.10/site-packages/_pyodide/", line 237, in __init__ self.ast = next(self._gen) File "/lib/python3.10/site-packages/_pyodide/", line 141, in _parse_and_compile_gen mod = compile(source, filename, mode, flags | ast.PyCF_ONLY_AST) File "", line 1 print(‘Test your code here’) ^ SyntaxError: invalid character '‘' (U+2018) ) Until i installed this plugin. Now the REPL runs within a Wordpress post! Its crazy to think what Pyscript is now capable of! Before i had to put static code into my WP posts when writing a tutorial post, but now readers can test the code in real time. Thanks a lot for the effort of putting this together
