BoxLang Unleashes the Power of Python: Introducing bx-jython!

BoxLang, the dynamic, modular, and productive scripting language, just got even better with the introduction of bx-jython! This powerful new feature enables seamless integration of Python code within your BoxLang scripts.

Unlocking Python's Potential in BoxLang

bx-jython allows you to:

  • Execute Python Code Directly: Embed Python code snippets within your BoxLang scripts using the jythonEval(code) function. Need to print a simple message? Just use jythonEval("print('Hello, World!')");
  • Leverage Existing Python Assets: Effortlessly reuse your Python libraries, files, and modules within BoxLang. Employ the jythonEvalFile(path) function to integrate external Python code.
  • Create Reusable Python Components: Develop Python modules and classes that seamlessly work within your BoxLang environment. The jythonEvalFile(path) function empowers you to integrate custom Python functionalities.
  • Streamlined Templating with <bx:jython>: Utilize the <bx:jython>{python code}</bx:jython> tag for embedding Python code directly into your BoxLang templates.

Examples to Ignite Your Creativity

The blog post can showcase these functionalities with practical examples:

  • Simple Python Execution: Print a message using jythonEval().
  • Integrating Python Files: Call a Python function defined in a separate file using jythonEvalFile().
  • Building Reusable Modules: Create a Python module within BoxLang and demonstrate its usage.
  • Templating with <bx:jython>: Craft a template that incorporates Python code for calculations and dynamic content.

Effortless Binding and Results

BoxLang automatically binds variables within your BoxLang script to the Python engine, allowing you to use them directly within your Python code. Each execution of Python code returns a result containing references to the engine, global scope, and engine scope for advanced use cases.

BoxLang: A Community-Driven Project

BoxLang's development flourishes thanks to the incredible support of the community and Ortus Solutions. Try boxlang today and be part of the movement.

bx-jython opens a world of possibilities for BoxLang developers. With the ability to leverage the vast Python ecosystem, BoxLang empowers you to tackle complex tasks and streamline your development workflow.
