It's not currently integrated, but I think with a bit of hacking you
could make it work:

Turtle uses tkinter behind the scenes, drawing on a Canvas widget,
which can save to postscript format (see
http://stackoverflow.com/a/6049340/434217). Then you can use a library
like PIL to convert that to png, which you can send to the frontend to

Best wishes,
