You can run Django on PyPy, and it appears to be running reasonably well. By Django version 1.0 the current issues should have been resolved. For now you can get a project like Pinax from Django Hotclub up and running with a bit of extra work.
Check out PyPy
svn co http://codespeak.net/svn/pypy/dist pypy-dist
This checks out a pypy package and a py package(has py.test and other neat Python code) If you are using git to check out, check out the py repository separately or install py using easy_install.
PyPy runs on
- Windows 32bit
- Mac OS X Intel and PPC
- Linux 32bit and 64bit
Don't try this on a weak machine. It must have at least 1Gb memory or it will do a lot of swapping. 2Gb is plenty. Expect it to take 30-60 minutes
cd pypy/translator/goals ./translate.py --thread --gc=hybrid --batch targetpypystandalone --faassen --allworkingmodules --oldstyle
This will create a pypy-c executable in the current directory. The generated interpreter will use the modified and standard Python libraries bundled with the PyPy source code if a runtime library is not already on the PYTHONPATH.
To compile PyPy you need a couple of developer tools. Essentially,
- Python 2.5 or 2.4 with ctypes
- C Compiler (gcc or equivalent)
- C Libraries
And you should be good to go
Check out Django
Do a subversion checkout of django trunk. Or get version 1.0 that has the signals speedup (ticket 6814) Or if ticket 6814 is not in yet, apply patch ticket 6857 (http://code.djangoproject.com/ticket/6857)
Django only requires Python 2.3. But, be aware that many popular django applications depend on Python 2.5 runtime lib.
