Python Tokenizer with `libpython` via `pyffi`

If you're looking for a way to tokenize python using its canonical tokenizer implementation, but wish to have the results in racket, this library may be useful.

Source code here GitHub - abhillman/py-tokenizer-rkt: Python tokenizer that delegates to libpython written in Racket.

I had a lot of fun writing it as pyffi is quite nice. it could allow for micro-interpreters to be written for Python or Python-like languages like bazel in Racket.

Future work may include:

  • supporting versions of python other than 3.10
  • implementing parsing support
  • writing a mini-interpreter, perhaps alternatively for starlark (the subset of Python implemented for bazel)
