To run Python code from JavaScript code using XAMPP, you can typically use an HTTP request from JavaScript to a Python script hosted on your XAMPP server. Here's a general overview of the steps to achieve this:

  1. Start or make sure XAMPP is running on your local machine. XAMPP includes a web server that can serve both PHP and Python scripts.
  2. Create a Python script that you want to run from JavaScript and save it in the "htdocs" directory of your XAMPP installation. For example, you can create a file named with your Python code.
  3. In your JavaScript code, you can make an AJAX request to the Python script using the XMLHttpRequest object or a library like jQuery.ajax(). Here's an example using jQuery.ajax():
    url: 'http://localhost/', // Replace with the correct URL of your Python script
    method: 'GET',
    success: function(response) {
        console.log(response); // Log the response from the Python script
    error: function(err) {
        console.error(err); // Log any errors

  1. When the JavaScript code makes the HTTP request to the Python script, XAMPP will execute the Python script and return the output back to the JavaScript code. You can then process the response as needed in your JavaScript code.
  2. Remember to ensure your Python script is set up to handle HTTP requests and return the appropriate response. You may need to use a Python web framework like Flask or Django to create a web server for your Python script.

By following these steps, you should be able to run Python code from JavaScript code using XAMPP on your local machine.
