Is the statement true, that Python and its ecosystem lacks speed for mission-critical large-scale applications?

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on reddit.com/r/Python

Our great sponsors
  • InfluxDB - Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.
  • SonarLint - Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • PyO3

    Rust bindings for the Python interpreter

    Why not both? Rust bindings for the Python interpreter

  • gopy

    gopy generates a CPython extension module from a go package.

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services. Easy to start, it is available in the cloud or on-premises.

  • static-ffmpeg

    Installs FFMPEG On Win32/Ubuntu/MacOS [Moved to: https://github.com/zackees/static_ffmpeg] (by zackees)

    Or the easiest method is to just create a binary that performs your CPU intensive action then call it with Python's subprocess.check_output(cmd, ...) and then evaluate the results. For example, I do this with https://github.com/zackees/static-ffmpeg. Python is used to gather the user arguments then simply delegates the processing to ffmpeg.

  • MicroPython

    MicroPython - a lean and efficient Python implementation for microcontrollers and constrained systems

    As the cost of more powerful micro-controllers continues to drop, the time and cost savings that comes with working in higher-level languages is starting to outweigh the cost of using cheaper/less-powerful micro-controllers. There are already options such as micropython and circuitpython for using Python on micro-controllers, but they're not in wide commercial use as of yet (as far as I'm aware).
