Oracle’s GraalVM seems to be a new “polyglot JVM” (whatever that may mean) and claims to run Python. Has anyone looked into this more?
Well never mind.
~/Downloads/graalvm-ce-19.1.0/Contents/Home$ bin/graalpython Python 3.7.3 (Thu Jun 27 00:39:59 PDT 2019) [GraalVM CE, Java 1.8.0_212] on darwin Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information. Please note: This Python implementation is in the very early stages, and can run little more than basic benchmarks at this point. >>>
I’ve never played with it myself, and don’t know the exact status. But what I do know is that Oracle is throwing tons of resources at Graal, and I know that they’ve measured how fast numpy runs on graalpython. So I’m pretty sure that startup message isn’t telling the whole story.
