So today I've had the idea of implementing Node.JS in Python because I love Node.JS but sometimes I hate the whole ".JS" part of it. It will be a fantastic learning exercise with TCP sockets and such, and will be good for learning the more intricate parts of Python as well.

Excited for Nodepy!

    What difference would it have from existing async capabilities in python?

    Legit curious. In the best way possible my dude. Not hating on ya or anything

    @AleCx04 No, no, no, that's exactly what got me really excited about this idea! What I mean by implementing NodeJS in Python is the library structure:

    import nodepy.http

    server = http.createServer(listener)


    I'll be implementing all the classes and functions myself for fun. I don't know if I'll make the project public on GitHub, as some people may confuse it for something usable

    @AleCx04 And to be clear, I'll be Pythonifying it. it will be http.create_server, not http.createServer

    You mean call nodejs.so from python or write some nodejs extension or new api ?

    @vane run node.js like server with python

    Dont mix up the runtime with modules. So you want to build the http module of nodejs with python or the whole engine? :D

    @blackfaded V8 is the runtime, Node is a large library of extentions to that runtime, and I'm building all of the Node library in Python for fun
