A Python extension module for A Toroidal LHC ApparatuS (ATLAS) Online Software has been developed for the Thin Gap Chamber (TGC) trigger system. Python is an interactive scripting language including built-in high-level libraries, and provides an easy way to build Web applications. These features are not included in the Online Software, and are important in developing test software for the TGC trigger system. The Python extension module is designed and implemented using a C++ library, "Boost.Python." We have developed a Web application using the extension module and Zope (a Python-based Web application server), which allows one to monitor the TGC trigger system from anywhere in the world. The functionalities of the Python extension module and its application for the TGC trigger system are presented.
