  • Mailman 3 Python multithreading without the GIL - Python-Dev

    It already landed in 3.11: https://github.com/python/cpython/pull/28488
  • Prototype GIL-less CPython shows nearly 20x speedups with 20 threads and good single-thread performance. Will the GIL be removed at some point, finally?

  • How and why is Java useful?
    The most common python interpreter is written in C and supports direct language bindings for C/C++ libraries, like OpenCV. When you're installing the python interpreter on your computer, you're actually installing an interpreter that was specifically compiled for your CPU architecture and operating system.

    Correction: the api also contains an implementation of geo-hashing from another xkcd comic. https://github.com/python/cpython/blob/main/Lib/antigravity.py
  • Anyone know why the C calls in BLT are slow in Python?
    Similar thing here. The Python interpreter defines a bunch of C structs for the different types of objects in Python. BearLibTerminal doesn't know anything about Python's internal representation of objects. Python has to convert your Python objects into C objects BLT can use, each time you call a C function. The comment at the type of this file outlines the process. And that's not even including whatever extra work libffi does after Python hands the data off to it.
  • Help with misterious Plotly module error
    Hi again. It sounds like you've got this mostly sorted, but can use a little clarification about how Python is installed. When you install a specific version of Python, all of the underlying code that makes Python work is copied to a specific location on your system. If you're curious exactly what that code looks like, here's the GitHub repository for CPython.

    Yes, looks like quite a few more are coming. Just take a look at this one: https://github.com/python/cpython/pull/28488
  • LAMP is dead! Long live (Perl) web frameworks!
    dev.to | 2021-10-05
    JavaScript/Node.js options dominated the four-letter acronyms as expected, but the fifth one surprised me: LAMP, the combination of the Linux operating system, Apache web server, MySQL relational database, and Perl, PHP, or Python programming languages. A quick web search for similar lists yielded similar results. Clearly, this meme (in the Dawkins sense) has outlasted its popularization by tech publisher O’Reilly in the 2000s.
