"If you want your code to run faster,
you should probably just use PyPy."
-- Guido van Rossum (creator of Python)
As official lab data state: on average, PyPy is 4.2 times faster than CPython which most people always use. This hint suggests easy steps to install PyPy on Windows Subsystem for Linux
First, download binary:
wget https://downloads.python.org/pypy/pypy3.6-v7.3.1-linux64.tar.bz2 sudo tar xf pypy3.6-v7.3.1-linux64.tar.bz2 -C /opt/ sudo ln -s /opt/pypy3.6-v7.3.1-linux64/bin/pypy3 /usr/local/bin/pypy
Now, you can for example create Pipenv project:
mkdir myproject cd myproject pipenv --python pypy
