Cython extension module for gbinder

Prerequisites

  • libgbinder
  • libglibutil
  • pkgconf

For development, you will also need Cython:

pip install cython

Description

There are two Cython files: cgbinder.pxd describing the C++ API of the libgbinder library, and gbinder.pyx describing classes that will be visible from Python user code. The .pyx imports .pxd to learn about C functions available to be called.

There is also setup.py file. This file describes how to build the extension module, using distutils. In there, we specify the library to link with as libraries=['gbinder']. The gbinder stands for libgbinder.so that we previously installed.

There are two options to build the package:

  • One, use Cython's cythonize() function to generate a .c file from the .pyx one, and then compile it against the libgbinder.so library.
  • Two, if the .c is already provided, just compile it - no Cython required!

Development build

For development, use option 1 by providing --cython flag:

python setup.py build_ext --inplace --cython

The result will be a .so shared library named like gbinder.cpython-38-x86_64-linux-gnu.so. build_ext means we're building a C++ extension. --inplace means to put it in the current directory. If you run python from current directory, you'll be able to import gbinder.

Distribute

To distribute, call sdist with --cython flag to create source distribution (unbuilt):

python setup.py sdist --cython

The result will be a dist/ directory with a distribution named like gbinder-python-*.tar.gz inside. The archive contains setup.py and gbinder.c, so users can build and install it without having Cython!

To publish to PyPI, run:

twine upload -r pypi dist/*

Install

To install, locate the .tar.gz distribution and run:

pip install dist/gbinder-python-*.tar.gz
