@tpietzsch plasma-umass/doppio#45 might be really interesting for using bdv from within a web browser. It is not possible right now because doppio does not support awt but the issue seems still active and maybe someone will add awt support. Something we should not get involved with directly but keep our eyes open, I think. I subscribed to that issue

yes :D
I tried it and it actually works but awt is still an issue. So if they ever happen to get it to work, we'll have bdv browser integration :)

not the language, but typically the runtime in the browser

That's disappointing, so it's not really an option
