Pyccel: write Python code, get Fortran speed


Imagine writing a pure Python library which can achieve the performance of Fortran or C/C++.
To this end we have developed Pyccel, which translates Python code to either Fortran or C, and makes the generated code callable from Python. The generated Fortran or C code is not only fast, but also human-readable; hence it can easily be profiled and optimized for the target machine.
Pyccel has a focus on high-performance computing applications, where the efficient usage of the available hardware resources is fundamental.
To this end it provides type annotations, function decorators, and OpenMP pragmas.
Pyccel is easy to use, is almost completely written in Python, and compares favourably against other Python accelerators.
