Can I run a python program on my website?

I just joined the dev.to community a couple of days ago and was wondering what I should write about as my first post. This question has been bugging me for a while now so I thought this might be a good way to get answers.

So say I created a game using python and I want users on my website to play my game online. Is there a way to implement this or will I have to recreate the game using a web programming language like JavaScript.

Thank You In Advance

The are different approaches to this challenge.

I would suggest you to check out following post

They describe opportunities to transpile your python code to javascript or they give your an opportunity for a python runtime on the browser. You have to decide which way works best for you.

Thank you. From what I read , I personally think I should just continue learning JavaScript. Its definitely worth learning and so far, not too difficult.

Re-Implementing your program would be definitely a good exercise.
Maybe you can create the backend with django or another python backend framework if you like. Or you just build the whole application in JS with a backend framework like Express or Next.JS
