Opinion wanted. is it better to wright an app as an imported module

Opinion wanted. is it better to wright an app as an imported module

(OP)
I am relativly new to Python & so far i find it to be exelent language for the sort of programming i do "personal & fun" with lots of potential.
 
The reson behind my question is i have seen that modules are partialy compiled the first time they are imported, dose this result in any significant performace gain.

what i mean is should i write my app as one big script or create a simple wrapper app to call is as a module?

CODE

import myapp
myapp

where myapp.py is the full application.
 

RE: Opinion wanted. is it better to wright an app as an imported module

That will probably depend on what the app's do.  That is, some complex operations will be noticeably improved by compiling, others not so much.
