    Haven't used it in anger yet, but I have high hopes for PyInfra:

  • Pyston

    A faster and highly-compatible implementation of the Python programming language.

    Project mention: Codon: Python Compiler | | 2023-05-08

    Just for reference,

    * Nuitka[0] "is a Python compiler written in Python. It's fully compatible with Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.4, 3.5, 3.6, 3.7, 3.8, 3.9, 3.10, and 3.11."

    * Pypy[1] "is a replacement for CPython" with builtin optimizations such as on the fly JIT compiles.

    * Cython[2] "is an optimising static compiler for both the Python programming language and the extended Cython programming language... makes writing C extensions for Python as easy as Python itself."

    * Numba[3] "is an open source JIT compiler that translates a subset of Python and NumPy code into fast machine code."

    * Pyston[4] "is a performance-optimizing JIT for Python, and is drop-in compatible with ... CPython 3.8.12"
