    Can someone connect the dots for me? Javascript to Python via JSON

    Hi all,

    I'm looking for a way for javascript to interact with python (which runs a server side process). Essentially I want to send a command with a the web, and have python execute certain code. but I'm lost as how I should get python to view/process and send back commands.

    I have an apache server up and python 2.7.

    Thanks in advance!

    you have to setup a cgi with python. im sure there are tons of example online.

    you can then use forms or ajax to interact with the cgi's url.
