Mozilla details Pyodide, which brings Python to browsers caught my eye.

However, it is not quite stable, according to the article.

Is there a gratis, stable, popular and well supported means of running Python as Web Assembly?

Obviously, without a good IDE, including debugger, it won't be of much use.

  • Not WebAssembly, but Brython is another setup for using Python in the browser.

You should not expect any Python runtime in Wbassembly production-grade stable yet. Webassembly came out 2 years ago. Pyodide (supported by Mozilla) is the most well supported Python AFAIK.

BTW, have you actually tried Pyodide? It runs quite well in my computer.

  • Nope, I only read of it yesterday. I will give it a spin over the holiday weekend. I am a very reluctant JS coder, and would much rater code C, or Python or Ada, but now we enter fantasy land ;-).

  • Hmm, I think that I will wait until there is a decent IDE which lets me test my web assembly in the actual browser code - unless you know of one?
