    How often have you used the dynamic features that are performance problematic? There are many dynamic aspects to python. Most of them are ok for performance. The worst ones for performance are things like adding methods/attributes to classes after class definition. You can add/redefine methods on classes which can make knowing what to lookup problematic. That's the main piece of dynamicness that static python approach from cinder,, disables. Even that is only disabled in a gradual manner in that you opt in for parts of your code to be static python modules while others behave as normal. Other thing is enable slots usage for any static module mainly meaning state up front all attributes you will have.

    Pyston originally started as an internal project at Dropbox and they had a couple of super interesting blogposts where they detailed their approach and findings[0]. After a a year or two, the project got axed, but the devs kept working on it and then released it on their own (I don't remember the details, but evidently the chosen license for the project allowed that).

    Last year (I think it was last year, but can't tell if that was 2020 or 2019) they released it on their own, thinking of a commercial model. Now they have switched to OSS+services, which is interesting because it'llopen up more people using Pyston.

    I tihnk this is interesting in its own right, but yesterday we got Facebook announcing Cinder[1] -- which is unsupported to outsiders, but significantly faster than Pyston. According to Facebook, they intend for parts of Cinder to be upstreamed (and have already upstreamed a few, apparently) to CPython. So again, and sorry for using such a vague word, it'll be interesting to see how all these things play out in time.
