Cython - C extensions for the Python language

  •        1020

Cython is a language that makes writing C extensions for the Python language as easy as Python itself. It is based on the well-known Pyrex, but supports more cutting edge functionality and optimizations. It gives you the combined power of Python and C to let you write Python code that calls back and forth from and to C or C++ code natively at any point.

The Cython language is a superset of the Python language that additionally supports calling C functions and declaring C types on variables and class attributes. This allows the compiler to generate very efficient C code from Cython code. The C code is generated once and then compiles with all major C/C++ compilers in CPython 2.4 and later, including Python 3.x.

mypy - New Python Variant

  •    Python

The mypy programming language is an experimental Python variant that aims to combine the benefits of dynamic (or "duck") typing and static typing. The goal is to have the expressive power and convenience of Python, and also compile-time type checking and efficient compilation to native code, without the need of a heavy-weight VM. Mypy will get rid of the Global Interpreter Lock (GIL) that is used in CPython and allow parallel programs to take advantage of multicore processors.

skylark - Skylark in Go: the Skylark configuration language, implemented in Go

  •    Go

This is the home of the Skylark in Go project. Skylark in Go is an interpreter for Skylark, implemented in Go.Skylark is a dialect of Python intended for use as a configuration language. Like Python, it is an untyped dynamic language with high-level data types, first-class functions with lexical scope, and garbage collection. Unlike CPython, independent Skylark threads execute in parallel, so Skylark workloads scale well on parallel machines. Skylark is a small and simple language with a familiar and highly readable syntax. You can use it as an expressive notation for structured data, defining functions to eliminate repetition, or you can use it to add scripting capabilities to an existing application.
