# Welcome to pocketpy

pkpy is a lightweight(~10000 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.

  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)]
