There are a few implementations of Python that generate code that can
run the browser. I'm currently using brython and its significantly
easier than struggling with JavaScript. It's not perfect by any means,
it has its own quirks and bugs but the developer is very responsive, the
product is getting better every month and I like to see the Python
community give it a bit more love
