Pyodide is a Python distribution for the browser and Node.js based on WebAssembly.
What is Pyodide?#
Pyodide is a port of CPython to WebAssembly/Emscripten.
Pyodide makes it possible to install and run Python packages in the browser with micropip. Any pure Python package with a wheel available on PyPI is supported. Many packages with C extensions have also been ported for use with Pyodide. These include many general-purpose packages such as regex, pyyaml, lxml and scientific Python packages including numpy, pandas, scipy, matplotlib, and scikit-learn.
When used inside a browser, Python has full access to the Web APIs.
