    For Python specifically, In addition to using rust-cpython or PyO3, maturin makes it really comfortable to build, package, and publish Rust code into Python packages and, if your niche doesn't quite fit, there's setuptools-python which might do it.

    Aside from the PyO3 and rust-cpython crates already mentioned, I'd suggest maturin as a way to integrate your build processes or possibly setuptools-rust.

    Compiled modules for Python stuff (I'd recommend PyO3 but the last one I started was before that worked on stable Rust, so I used its progenitor, rust-cpython. See also maturin or setuptools-rust).
  • Can someone help me understand PyO3? I'm not sure how it works.

    ...but you will need to rename the generated library to match import conventions. setuptools-rust or Maturin can help with that.

    Between pyodide, pyo3, rust-cpython, and rustpython, I think Pyo3 is the best way to drop in rust in a python project for a speed up, if that is your goal. Some of the demos show using python from rust, but to me the biggest feature is without a doubt compiling rust code to native python modules. I'm using it to speed up image manipulation backed by numpy arrays.

    There’s a setuptools rust [0] extension package that can be used to hook the compilation of the rust into the wheel building or install from source. Maturin [1] seems to be regarded as the new and improved solution for this, but I found that it’s angled toward the using python from rust.

    There’s also the rust numpy [2] package by the same org which is fantastic in that it lets you pass a numpy matrix to a native method written in rust and convert it to the rust equivalent data structure, perform whatever transformation you want (in parallel using rayon [3]), and return the array. When building for release, I was seeing speed ups of 100x over numpy on the most matrix mathable function imaginable, and numpy is no joke.

    I think there is a lot of potential for these two ecosystems together. If there’s not a python package for something, there’s probably a rust crate.

    If anyone is interested the python package that I'm building with some rust backend, its called pyrogis [4] for making custom image manipulations through numpy arrays.
