PyPy: Python in Python Implementation

Welcome to PyPy!

PyPy is both an implementation of the Python programming language, and an extensive compiler framework for dynamic language implementations. You can build self-contained Python implementations which execute independently from CPython.

The home page is:

If you want to help developing PyPy, this document might help you:

It will also point you to the rest of the documentation which is generated from files in the pypy/doc directory within the source repositories. Enjoy and send us feedback!

First switch to or download the correct branch. The basic choices are default for Python 2.7 and, for Python 3.X, the corresponding py3.X branch (e.g. py3.5).

Build with:

$ rpython/bin/rpython -Ojit pypy/goal/

This ends up with a pypy-c or pypy3-c binary in the main pypy directory. We suggest to use virtualenv with the resulting pypy-c/pypy3-c as the interpreter; you can find more details about various installation schemes here:
