    This story unfolds as a captivating journey where the agile Flounder, representing the Python programming language, navigates the vast seas of coding under the wise guidance of Sebastian, symbolizing Rust. Central to their adventure are three powerful tridents: cargo, PyO3, and maturin.

    My new favorite way to write very fast libraries for Python is to just use Rust and Maturin:

    It basically automates everything for you. If you use it with Github actions, it will compile wheels for you on each release for every platform and python version you want, and even upload them to PyPi (pip) for you. Everything feels very modern and well thought out. People really care about good tooling in the Rust world.

    Python first, you will be able to experiment quickly with the notebooks. Then maybe write (or rewrite) some modules in Rust that you can expose as python modules, with py03 and maturin. Feel free to publish useful packages on both and, so you can contribute to Python and Rust ecosystems.
  • python to rust migration
    5 projects | /r/rust | 23 Apr 2023
    Now if you really want to use Rust, you can rewrite only the part that are slowing down your consumer. It's easy by using Py03 and maturin. Maybe also rayon to parallelize.
  • Ask HN: Is it worth it for me to learn Go or Rust as a Data Engineer?
    1 project | | 21 Apr 2023
    It's relatively easy to extend Python with project like Py03[0] and Maturin[1]. Polars[2] is the perfect example of that.

    It's not easy to push coworkers/companies to use an unfamiliar language. Rust isn't fast to learn. You need very good arguments and a good usecase to make it works.

    I doubt that learning Rust will help you more that learning more about the data engineers tools, so this isn't really "worth" your time.

    In this case, PyO3/maturin does all the setup and getting the module into Python. They also have docs going into a lot more depth on this.

    Lastly if you're willing to introduce Rust, I'd consider a gradual approach using native libraries built in rust with PYO3. Check the maturin guide that helps you to streamline the build process of native libraries : . From there you could try to find hotspots in your python app and replace those with a native implementation.
