Firefox Pyodide – Scientific Computing in the Browser?
The Mozilla Hacks Blog had a really neat post about an experimental project involving a full Python-based data science stack on the browser.
WebAssembly is the technology that makes this possible. Per the WebAssembly link:
Pyodide is a really neat experiment that combines the power of WebAssembly with some amazing scientific libraries in Python (i.e. NumPy, Pandas, Matplotlib, parts of SciPy, and NetworkX).
If browser-based web applications can run at native speeds, then how necessary are native apps? (and especially mobile native apps)
