Hi, Tennis --
that loads data dynamically from a backends) for site exploration.
Then you have to understand the interaction between the JS and a Python
backend before you can get a comprehensive idea of the functional paths
you need to test.
It would be nice for this if you *could* run JS directly from a Python

but that's as much as I know about it ;). If you try it out for
anything I'd be interested in your experiences.
