LPython is the latest open-source Python implementation aiming to be a very performant version of Python among other interesting features.

LPython has been in development as a Python compiler able to produce optimized machine code. LPython has back-ends for LLVM, translation to C/C++, and even WebAssembly (WASM) support. Speed and performance are among the main goals for this alpha-stage software. LPython supports just-in-time (JIT) compilation, code compatibility with CPython, and works across all major platforms.
