prometeo – An experimental Python-to-C transpiler for embedded high-performance computing #Python

Prometeo is an experimental Python-to-C transpiler and domain specific language for embedded high-performance computing. prometeo provides a domain specific language (DSL) based on a subset of the Python language that allows one to conveniently write scientific computing programs in a high-level language (Python itself) that can be transpiled to high-performance self-contained C code easily deployable on embedded devices.

features

  • Python compatible syntax : prometeo is a DSL embedded into the Python language. prometeo programs can be executed from the Python interpreter.
  • efficient : prometeo programs transpile to high-performance C code.
  • statically typed : prometeo uses Python’s native type hints to strictly enforce static typing.
  • deterministic memory usage : a specific program structure is required and enforced through static analysis. In this way prometeo transpiled programs have a guaranteed maximum heap usage.
  • fast memory management : thanks to its static analysis, prometeo can avoid allocating and garbage-collecting memory, resulting in faster and safer execution.
  • self-contained and embeddable : unlike other similar tools and languages, prometeo targets specifically embedded applications and programs written in prometeo transpile to self-contained C code that does not require linking against the Python run-time library.

Since prometeo programs transpile to pure C code that calls the high performance linear algebra library BLASFEO, execution time can be comparable to hand-written high-performance code.
