pythonlang

Description

pythonlang's intention is to import all Python 3 Built-In Functions to Javascript, while keeping the performance hit to a minimum.

Motivation

  1. Javascript is rife with facepalm inducing quirks and unexpected behaviors
  2. Python is fun; Its built-ins are reliable, simple and consistent
  3. Therefore, translating Python's built-ins into JS will reduce the amount of facepalms and make things better overall

Rigorousness

Progress (July 26 2019)

Built-in Tests written % Tests passing Status
int 603 100% Stable ✅
bool 5 60% Lacking features, stable
abs 8 100% Lacking features, stable
any 1 100% Lacking features, stable

... > 60 untouched

Known Issues

  • Strict equality doesn't work yet, eg:
    int(3) == 3
    >>> true
     
    int(3) === 3
    >>> false
  • No bundling tools

FAQ

Q: Are you really going to implement all 69 built-ins?
A: Probably not. Some of them can't be implemented anyway (like classmethod), and some of them are rarely used and are too complex to justify including them (like memoryview)
