My First Impression Trying Python on Browser

JavaScript is the de-facto programming language of the browser. We can't write any other programming language inside an HTML.

But a recent Python package is about to change it.

Now you can write Python scripts inside the HTML. You can:

  • use it to manipulate DOM like JS is doing;
  • fetch data from external APIs using urllib or requests;
  • use your favorite Python packages such as Pandas, Scikit-learn, etc, and;
  • build ML models

all inside the browser.

But the package isn't perfect for production yet.

In this post, I discuss with examples some of the merits and drawbacks of using Python on a browser.
