0.8.4 vs 2.0.0a4 performance

See original GitHub issue

Congrats @lepture for this project! (I’m doing a benchmark of many Markdown to HTML libraries, and mistune seems to be the best!)

I used timeit with the same Markdown document, and:

  • version 0.8.4: mistune.markdown(s) took 4ms on average
  • version 2.0.0a4: mistune.markdown(s) took 13ms on average (for the same document)

What could be the reason of 2.0.0a4 be 3x slower than version 0.8.4?

Can I use 0.8.4 for my current project, is it still stable?

s = 'my_sample_document'
import timeit
print(timeit.timeit("markdown(s)", setup="from mistune import markdown;from __main__ import s", number=100)/100)

@viniciusban Thanks for these suggestions. I’ll probably try these later; for now ~25ms with mistune 0.8.4 is fine, I think I’ll just keep using this version and it’s perfect.
