|Mozilla Makes Pyodide Community Project|

Pyodide is now an independent community project rather than being developed in-house at Mozilla. Pyodide provides a way to run Python in web browsers by using a WebAssembly compilation of the CPython interpreter and scientific stack.
Pyodide was created as part of Mozilla's Iodide project to develop an experimental web-based notebook environment for literate scientific computing and communication. Mozilla stopped work on Iodide and it is no longer maintained. This follows a similar pattern to Mozilla's decision to transfer Rust to the Rust Foundation after Mozilla laid off 250 employees as part of a company restructuring in 2020.
