I'm about to release v2 of Boost.Python, and I thought it might be nice to provide a distutils setup for it. We have our own build system, but some Python users might be more comfortable with distutils, and I have a secret hope that distutils will be able to work on a few paltforms we don't have covered such as MacOS X.
I'm now kicking myself for throwing them away, but one of my users sent me distutils scripts for Boost.Python a while back as part of a bug report.
My problems are twofold:
- I have to distribute a shared library which is not an extension module.
The extension modules I have to distribute (tests and examples) all link to this library.
Attached is a setup_libbpl2.py file that builds libbpl2.so file containing boost.python code. After setup_libbpl2.py install it can be used as follows. The setup.py file of the extension module contains the following bits:
from libbpl2 import __file__ as boost_so
ext = Extension('foo', sources=[..], include_dirs=[boost_dir]+.., .. extra_objects = [boost_so], )
Attachement also includes setup_ginac.py file as a real example of using libbpl2 library.
Is is not necessary to compile it as python module, you can also use the compiler classes directly. For example for PyOpenGL we make a TK module this way.
see for example function togl_build in http://cvs.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/pyopengl/PyOpenGL2/setup/togl...
