Dropbox Announces Their Own Open-Source Python
The Dropbox cloud storage provider has announced Pyston, their own open-source JIT compiler to Python. The big focus with Pyston is on speed.
Pyston is to be an open-source JIT-based Python implementation focused on maximizing the performance. Yes, Dropbox acknowledges PyPy, Jython, and other Python-based projects, but they hope to be able to deliver greater performance while being compatible with the upstream Python implementation. Pyston is also built atop the LLVM compiler infrastructure.
Those Python developers interested in more information on Pyston can read this Dropbox blog post and find the initial commit of their open-source code via GitHub.
