Pyston is a performance-oriented Python implementation built using LLVM and modern JIT techniques. For a high-level description of how it works, please check out our technical overview or our FAQ for some more details.

We have a small website pyston.org, which for now just hosts the blog. We have two mailing lists: [email protected] for development-related discussions, and [email protected] which is for wider announcements (new releases, major project changes). We also have a gitter chat room where most discussion takes place.
