I'm confused, do you have a link or example showing how to use xtensor-python without pybind11? Thanks, Neal

Even if you don't use the numpy-mimicking parts of the xtensor API,
xtensor-python is a probably a net improvement over pybind11 for communicating arrays back and forth across the C++/Python boundary. Even if the rest of your C++ code doesn't use xtensor, you could profitably use xtensor-python at the interface. Also, though the article is generally framed as using Python as a glue language (i.e. communicating with existing C/C++/Fortran code), it is also relevant for the use case where you are writing the C/C++/Fortran code from scratch (perhaps just accelerating small kernels or whatever). Talking about the available options for that use case is perfectly on-topic for that article.
no objections here, xtensor should be highlighted in the pybind11 part for these reasons. I just think it should not be a separate section.
