line_profiler will profile the time individual lines of code take to execute. The profiler is implemented in C via Cython in order to reduce the overhead of profiling. Also included is the script kernprof.py which can be used to conveniently profile Python applications and scripts either with line_profiler or with the function-level profiling tools in the Python standard library.
