Google 弄出來的 Grumpy:把 Python 2.7 的程式碼轉成 Go...

Google 放出 Grumpy,可以把 Python 2.7 的程式碼轉成 Go:「Grumpy: Go running Python!」。

下面看到一個留言頗有趣的:

This sad to see that Grumpy is mean to be a replacement of CPython 2.7 instead of CPython 3.x . I presume the code from youtube was written in python 2.x hence the reason but I hope we'll see Grumpy supporting python 3.x :)

回到原文,這次的需求主要是出自 YouTube 的需求:

The front-end server that drives youtube.com and YouTube’s APIs is primarily written in Python, and it serves millions of requests per second! YouTube’s front-end runs on CPython 2.7, so we’ve put a ton of work into improving the runtime and adapting our application to work optimally within it.

然後 Python 的 GIL 又被拿出來鞭屍:

除了 C extension 不支援外,還是有些「過於動態」的語法不支援:

exec, eval and compile: These dynamic features of CPython are not supported by Grumpy because Grumpy modules consist of statically compiled Go code. Supporting dynamic execution would require bundling Grumpy programs with the compilation toolchain which would be unwieldy and impractically slow.

這樣可用的範圍少不少,這個專案可以當作 YouTube 這種規模的網站所做的改善,而不是什麼可以拿來用的工具 :o
