# Welcome to pocketpy

pkpy is a lightweight(~15K LOC) Python interpreter for game scripting, built on C++17 with STL.

It aims to be an alternative to lua for game scripting, with elegant syntax, powerful features and competitive performance. pkpy is extremely easy to embed via a single header file pocketpy.h, without external dependencies.

Caution: pocketpy should not be your first C++ project. Please learn C++ programming, compiling, linking, and debugging before working with pocketpy. There are many resources for this on the net.

# What it looks like

def is_prime(x):
  if x < 2:
    return False
  for i in range(2, x):
    if x % i == 0:
      return False
  return True

primes = [i for i in range(2, 20) if is_prime(i)]
# [2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19]
