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 is a methid-at-atime JIT compiler that itself is written in Python and translates Python code into C++ and provides automatic compilation at run-time. HOPE is focused not on supporting the entire Python language set of functions but rather the language features most relevant to HOPE developers' needs -- astrophysical calculations. "By concentrating on this subset, HOPE is able to achieve the highest possible performance."

Those wishing to learn more about this latest Python compiler aiming for high performance can check out the GitHub project page.
