I haven't tried it myself yet, but this new thing called PyScript looks really cool!!

This Getting Started document tells some specific details about using it: It appears to be as easy as including some JavaScript and writing Python code inside an HTML tag!

I do firmly believe that Python being available on the web as a "frontend" language is a good thing. Actually, I support any language taking this role because it's not really logical that we're stuck using JavaScript (without any hate to JavaScript, which I've grown a fondness to).

But I'm most excited specifically about Python, because 1) it's a good scripting language for sharing scientific research, and 2) it's a great programming language for learning to code. Having something available on the web will inspire more learners to give it a try, and I think they'll be more likely to enjoy coding when they do :)
