Make your own internet in Python

Make your own internet in Python

#1

Hey I just wonder how can you make your own internet written in Python code?


#2

writing your own internet in python - hmm …

seems a bit off-topic in a javascript forum


#3

You will need to be a little more specific that “make your own internet”. What exactly are you trying to do?


#4

Recreating the entire internet and in one language…quite an ambitious task :sweat_smile:


#5

I’m trying to use Python (with some frameworks) as a server and a web site to display info from server. Maybe I could help you, but… what do you mean by internet?


#6

Did you watch too much Silicon valley?


#7

I mean make your own web in a program


#8

If you know Python already, but you don’t know how to use it to make web sites, then the info on the web site can help:
Comparison of web frameworks for python
You will need a web framework like Django (the most popular I think), but I prefer Flask (as powerful as Django)
There’s a nice tutorial here:
RealPython
or this one:
RaspberryPi-spy
Probably you can omit some bits for now (heroku, linux shell if you use Windows/MacOS)
And remember that Google is your friend :slight_smile:


#9

I hope you understand that I mean making your own internet in a Python program and not a web site


#10

I now understand you do not want to create a website with Python. However, can you provide an example of what your want your program to do using Python? Explain what should happen when you run the program. “Make your own internet” could mean many different things. What is your definition of “own internet”?


#11

My definition is a internet that let you go into websites like Mozilla and Google Chrome. Or if you wanna play games online with other people.


#12

you mean browser???


#13

OK, so you want to build your own web browser. I have not tried to build such a program in Python, but if you google “how to make a web browser in python” you will get all kinds of links you can read through.


#14

Udacity’s python course doesn’t recreate the entire internet…but it does have you build an internet search engine using the original google algorithm!


#15

I think you mean creating your own personal network with websites and services. If that’s true, you could look at hosing a web server and creating a set of services hosted by a raspberry pi or some other computer (on your home network).
