Project description


Cython speedups for various parts of


pip install discord-ext-speedups


import discord
from discord.ext import speedups

This monkeypatches all available C extensions into, replacing the existing ones. This is best done immediately after import discord. To only install specific patches, pass the names to install(). For more info, see the reference section below.

To revert patches, simply call speedups.uninstall() to restore all modules to normal. This function also takes specific module names as arguments. Note: You should probably avoid doing this while you're using the modules or objects this library alters.

Available patches


Cython bindings for libopus. This was written as an experiment in cython and doesn't produce that much of a speedup. A benchmark indicated a 10% speedup of Encoder.encode(), but this also works out to a mere 0.5% of the total time window for this call (20ms/frame).


install(*install_modules, ignore=False)

Patches in replacement modules.

  • *install_modules (str)

    Module names to install. The list of available module names can be found above, or by calling get_available_patches().

  • ignore (bool)

Returns a list[str] of module names.

uninstall(*uninstall_modules, ignore=False)

Undo patching and restore the original modules.

  • *uninstall_modules (str)

    Modules names to uninstall. The list of installed module names can be found by calling get_installed_patches().

  • ignore (bool)

    If True, uninstall all available modules except the given modules.


Returns a tuple[str] of available module names.


Returns a tuple[str] of installed module names.
