Build small applications from Hy source files

Project description



MIT License python PyPI
Hy is a LISP dialect running on a Python virtual machine. Hypo allows you to build small applications from Hy source files. Similar to Python’s zipapp, Hypo creates executable archives. Since the Hy source files will be compiled into .pyc files, the executable archive will run faster than on interpreter.


  • Python >= (2.6, 3.5)
  • Hy >= 0.12.1


$ pip install hypo


$ hypo --help
usage: hypo [options] <targets>

  -o [file]  output name
  --version  show program's version number and exit
  --help     show this message and exit


You can build these source files as follows:

$ hypo -o app main.hy iota.hy

And you can execute the application as follows:

$ ./app
(0L 1L 2L 3L 4L 5L 6L 7L 8L 9L)


$ python app
(0L 1L 2L 3L 4L 5L 6L 7L 8L 9L)

Source files

  • iota.hy
(defn iota [m &optional [n 0] [step 1]]
  (if (>= n m)
    (cons n (iota m (+ n step) step))))
  • main.hy
(import [iota [iota]])

(defmain [&rest args]
  (print (iota 10)))
