In a step toward its goal of building out a data science development stack for web browsers, Mozilla today detailed Pyodide, an experimental Python project that’s designed to perform computation without the need for a remote kernel (i.e., a program that runs and inspects code).
Droettboom says that in the future, Pyodide will be able to load most packages directly from Python’s main community repository, PyPI, which will give it access to around 59,000 packages in total.
Pyodide’s debut comes on the heels of Mozilla’s Iodide, an “experimental tool” meant to help scientists and engineers write and share interactive documents using an iterative workflow. It’s currently in alpha and available from GitHub in open source.
