PyPy vs DAML: What are the differences?
Developers describe PyPy as "A fast, JIT-compiled Python implementation". It is a very compliant implementation of the Python language, featuring a JIT compiler. It runs code about 7 times faster than CPython. On the other hand, DAML is detailed as "Open-source programming language for writing distributed applications". It is an open-source programming language for writing distributed applications quickly, concisely, and correctly. It runs on the leading blockchain platforms which means that you can build your application now and pick which platform works best for you later.
PyPy and DAML can be primarily classified as "Languages" tools.
Some of the features offered by PyPy are:
- JIT compiler
- real GC
- low memory usage
On the other hand, DAML provides the following key features:
- Supports existing platforms integration like Hyperledger Fabric, R3’s Corda and Amazon Aurora
- Scenario-based Testing
- Fine-grained Permissions
