- suspendable interpreter with support for threading and greenlets
- integrated debugger and interactive remote debugging (CLI, PyCharm, …)
- flexible preprocessor based architecture to optimize Jaspy for your needs
- full support for meta-classes, builtin subclassing and operator overloading
- asynchronous imports and arbitrary-length integers based onBigInteger.js
Jaspy comes with an integrated development server and interactive debugger!
First clone the repository and build the interpreter:
git clone --recursive https://github.com/koehlma/jaspy.git; cd jaspy python3 build.py # compile the interpreter
Install dependencies for the interactive console, if they are not installed already:
pip3 install --user -r requirements.txt pip3 install --user ptpython pygments
Switch to the example directory and start the server in interactive mode:
cd example PYTHONPATH=../ python3 -m jaspy.cli --interactive
Visit http://localhost:8080/hello.html in your browser and click run:
Most of them are faster than Jaspy but none of them offers the unique features of Jaspy, which are the fully suspendable interpreter with threading support, the integrated debugger and the flexible, preprocessor based architecture.
This project is still in an alpha state. The APIs are unstable, it is untested and not ready for productive use. Some of the features listed above aren’t yet implemented.
If you like the ideas of Jaspy feel free to join, there are many things to do:
- implement all the batteries-included-builtin stuff of Python
- implement native JS modules for the DOM, JS objects and some Web APIs
- improve the debugger and make it fully compatible to the PyDev protocol
- complete and adjust the implementation of the Python bytecode VM
- support for Apache Cordova (Jaspy for cross platform mobile applications)
- implement a neat UI library on top of Jaspy (using a flexbox based grid)
- … and, of course, your own great ideas and cool features

Many thanks to the Brython project for the inspiration for many parts of code of the builtin-classes. Many thanks also to the book “500 Lines or Less” which is a good starting point if you want to know how the interpreter works.
