Write Vaadin apps with Python

I know that there are some folks out there that would love to use Python instead of Java to write Vaadin apps. I have good news for you. It is possible and even worth trying it out. I wrote a short how to article to the wiki with some examples and observations.


Work there has been done 90% without need for any additional wrappers or extensions. This is made possible by Jython so that both Java and Python written classes can gracefully co-exist in a same JVM.

Would you like to add a mention of Muntjac project in the wiki?

I would. There’s now a short comparison at the end of the wiki article. I didn’t want to go ranting about the competitor so I kept it strictly comparative :smug:

I tried following the instruction but without success. It’s been so long since first published, are they still valid?

Since the writing of that article lots of things have happened while biggest being upgrade from Vaadin 6 to Vaadin 7. It should still be valid for 6 but not 7.
