IndyPy: Full Stack Python

If you want to build a dynamic, modern web app these days, you'd assume that you need a front-end JavaScript framework like React or Vue to bring your app to life. That stinks for Pythonistas because we'd need to cross into a different stack. However, thanks to HTMX, we can develop full-stack Python web apps! HTMX is an awesome library that provides custom HTML attributes to handle AJAX, CSS transitions, WebSockets, and more.

In this talk, we'll build a full-stack Python web app using FastAPI for the backend, HTMX for the frontend, and Playwright for testing. You'll learn how to use HTMX directives to control dynamic interactions just like any of the popular JS front-end frameworks.
