Tips for a module showing graphs from HTML scraping

  • Dear all,

    I would like to develop a module which would display graphs created from webpage scraping. I’m totally able to code such a thing in Python, but I have no clue with Javascript (yet, but I’m willing to learn). So I wonder which solution would be the best to your opinion :
    i) a all javascript module
    ii) some javascript which would launch a Python script behind the hood (possible?)
    or something else?

    Please let me know any advise or comment which could help me on how and where to begin.

    Thanks in advance,

  • Module Developer

    Hey, i would recomend you to do all in javascript. I love python, but what you’ve planed is perfectly doable in javascript. See chart.js for example. As long as it’s possible to write a project in one language, i would never combine more languages.
