Data visualisation in the browser with PyScript

PyScript is a new open source framework that enables the creation of rich Python applications in the browser using HTML’s interface and the power of Pyodide, WASM and modern web technologies.

Running Python directly in the browser has the great potential of completely change the way in which Data Science can be delivered and democratised, using browsers as ubiquitous computational platforms.

Data Visualisation is perhaps one of the most impactful scenarios in which PyScript can demostrate its full potential, enabling seamless integrations of the Python/PyData stack with native Javascript libraries (e.g. d3.js<).

In the first part of my talk, I will introduce the core features of PyScript, along with a general description of how it works, and how the project is positioned within front-end technologies’ ecosystem. Afterwards, I will showcase several examples of data-viz apps using multiple libraries, demonstrating how PyScript can bridge the gap between Python and Javascript for complex data use cases.
