Interactive Data Science in the browser with JupyterLite and Emscripten Forge
Jeremy Tuloup, Martin Renou, Thorsten Beier

JupyterLite is a Jupyter distribution that runs entirely in the web browser, backed by in-browser language kernels including WebAssembly powered Jupyter Xeus kernels and Pyodide.

JupyterLite enables data science and interactive computing with the PyData scientific stack, directly in the browser, without installing anything or running a server.

JupyterLite leverages the Emscripten and Conda Forge infrastructure, making it possible to easily install custom packages with binary extensions in the browser, such as numpy, scipy and scikit-learn.
