While web-based apps are displacing classic desktop applications, it is a historically unique situation that we have only one programming language (JavaScript) available on one platform (browser). I think with WebAssembly it will be possible in the future to write web apps in any language - and it will be common to use something other than JavaScript.

Because its pretty cool even though its performance is nowhere near as close to JavaScript right now. But it's still a fun concept and gives Python developers something new to play around with.

"SciPy and PyData spearheaded an Open Data Science movement, to ensure that an ML, AI world is as open and accessible as possible. With PyScript, we can broaden that mission to the broader web and computing in general. Computing for the people; for their communities."
