Reinventing the Parser Generator - PyCon - May 12, 2018


My talk from PyCon 2018, “Reinventing the Parser Generator” has been posted. Video:

This talk covers some of my thoughts about trying to modernize the PLY project. For the past couple of years, I’ve been fooling around with the little-known SLY project. Basically, it’s PLY, but with a much more extreme use of metaprogramming to bend Python to my evil whims. Overall, I like SLY a lot better ;-).
