      The blog says:

      LPython offers several backends such as LLVM, C, C++, WASM, Julia and x86

      But there’s no mention of a Julia backend in the project readme or docs. It would be relevant to my interests if it could compile python to Julia :)

        I don’t even know why that’s a thing they’re targeting. You can use Python from Julia already.

          It’s a little strange, but it would make it easier for people to port projects from python to julia. And, yeah, you can use python or C code from Julia quite easily, but having a Julia source file is still easier (and often faster).

      Very curious about the results when dealing with mypyc, which I feel like is doing very similar things here

      I like the ideas and more competition in this field is always better, but this is not pythonic code:

      for i in range(n):
              s += x[i]

      I’m looking for a project which uses pythonic code as input.

      Benchmarks are for numeric and graph algorithms. Nothing about eg string processing.

        Given this is coming from the fortran community and types who work at US national labs, the target is clearly numerical Python code.
