PyPy - fast, compliant alternative implementation of the Python language

  •        656

PyPy is a fast, compliant alternative implementation of the Python language. It supports most of the commonly used Python standard library modules. Its feature include Just-in-Time compiler, Less memory usage, support Stackless and lot more. PyPy focuses on speed, efficiency and 100% compatibility with the original CPython interpreter. It was conceived as an implementation of Python written in Python, which enables Python developers to hack the implementation.

mypy - New Python Variant

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.

IronPython - Python programming language for the .NET Framework

IronPython is an open-source implementation of the Python programming language which is tightly integrated with the .NET Framework. IronPython can use the .NET Framework and Python libraries, and other .NET languages can use Python code just as easily. It supports an interactive console with fully dynamic compilation.

Python for .NET - Python integration with the .NET

Python for .NET is a package that gives Python programmers nearly seamless integration with the .NET Common Language Runtime (CLR) and provides a powerful application scripting tool for .NET developers. Using this package you can script .NET applications or build entire applications in Python, using .NET services and components written in any language that targets the CLR (Managed C++, C#, VB, JScript).

Cython - C extensions for the Python language

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.

Stackless Python - Enhanced version of the Python

Stackless Python is an enhanced version of the Python programming language. It allows programmers to reap the benefits of thread-based programming without the performance and complexity problems associated with conventional threads. The most prominent feature of Stackless is microthreads, which avoid much of the overhead associated with usual operating system threads.

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