Build a custom Google Map web app with Anvil
Anvil is a web-based tool for building full-stack web apps with nothing but Python. It’s great for building demos, prototypes, web forms, CRUD apps and all sorts of interactive applications.
I came up with an idea for a relatively simple demo multi-page app that would show some of the key features of Anvil, and hopefully you’ll find it a useful taster of what you can build.
This is my very first screencast tutorial (so please be kind). If people like it I’ll think about doing more in future!
Click through to the video and you’ll see chapter markings along the way.
This app is running on the web at: https://location-map-demo.anvil.app/
This particular app is hosted by Anvil, but it’s now possible to self-host your own Anvil apps because they recently open-sourced the runtime!
Next week I’ll make a video on how to deploy an Anvil web app to your own server – using an Ubuntu machine, or a Raspberry Pi.
