rython transparently mixes Ruby code into Python.

If you've ever needed to use Ruby for a particular task, but wanted to use Python as your primary language, Rython lets you easily mix the two languages together. Why would I want to mix Ruby and Python? There are many reasons:

  • you need a Ruby Gem that provides unique functionality which no Python module provides
  • you need a simpler syntax for manipulating regular expressions
  • you want to quickly bridge to code you've already written in Ruby
