Runtime accelerator for numerical Python

Download this project as a .zip file Download this project as a tar.gz file

Parakeet is a just-in-time compiler for numerical Python, which can speed up your code by compiling native versions of a function for each distinct set of input types. Parakeet also exposes data parallel operators which enable high-level optimizations and parallelization. Parakeet is not a general-purpose compiler for all of Python but rather supports only a small set of language constructs useful for numerical computing.

If you're curious about how Parakeet relates to other runtime compilers for numerical Python, read this post.
