Python Shells in Browser!?

Recently, I chanced upon something cool! Its a python shell running on the Browser. 🤯

The technology behind it is Pyodide and primarily based on WebAssembly/Emscripten. Check out the papers below if you are interested!

You can even do things like import os and open,read,write files to it!

Sounds pretty dangerous but everything is done behind a sandbox (hmmmmm?).

You can check it out here: Sexy python shell 🥳

PS: Hahaha I wanted to host it so I can have my own shell to play with. Everyone love shells, right?
