    Phoronix: HOPE: The Ease Of Python With The Speed Of C++

    HOPE is the latest Python compiler out there focused to deliver great speed. The HOPE JIT compiler is said to combine the ease of Python with the speed of C++...

    HOPE to much resemblance to facebooks HIPHOP now called hhvm

      For those actually looking to compile python, check out Nuitka:
      http://nuitka.net/
      It converts to C++/C style code, does optimizations, and produces binaries (standalone like CX_Freeze, or not). I'm not the author, just a user.

        Cython and shedskin already exist.

          expectations

          As a professional group, compiler writers more-often-than-not over-promise and severely under-deliver. TTBOMK, no single JIT-ed dynamic language has even gotten close to the speed of C++. I'm talking about well-written, performance-optimized code. One can always write "crap" and then "prove" that one language is faster than the other.

            Hmm I haven't heard of this. I may look into it. Do you know if it supports libraries like Qt or pygame?

              Tell me they are not using some kind of stupid garbage collector which alone makes it not as fast as a proper written c++ application...

                Probably, yes. I haven't tried pygame, but It works fine compiling my pysdl2 project. If it doesn't work on something, open a bug ticket. They're goal is full compatibility, and it's pretty much already fully compatible.

                  Wow, another project which intends to achieve the speed of compiled code with a JiT-compiler. Well, don't they all wish to achieve this? Let them try, perhaps something good comes out of it, even though the goal is unrealistic. At least they've done one thing right; choosing an appropriate name for the project. Unfortunately even Barack says:

                  Let's keep your eyes out for flying pigs.

                  Sarcasm aside, good luck.

                    The word "JIT" in there already calls to the bulls**t claims that it reaches C++ speed...
