Mozilla’s Pyodide, an open-source project for running Python inside a web browser, has become an independent and community-driven project with a new home on GitHub. The company also announced the new 0.17 release as part of its announcement.
The project wants to bring the Python runtime to the browser via WebAssembly along with NumPy, Pandas, Matplotlib, parts of SciPy and NetworkX.
The latest release also completes the migration to the latest version of Emscripten that uses the upstream LLVM backend, reducing significant reductions, package size and execution time.
Pyodide was originally developed inside Mozilla to allow the use of Python in Iodide to build an interactive scientific computing environment for the web.
