Python Wrapper for Puccini
This is a Python library for calling Puccini. It works by using ctypes to call a shared library (.so) built from Puccini’s Go code. This is done in-process, so there’s no sub-process forking.
Note that we currently only support installation on 64-bit Linux.
setup.py is designed to fetch what it needs from the Internet: it will fetch a Go
compiler, fetch the Puccini sources, and then build the shared library. So there are no special
prerequisites to install it.
For example, to install the latest development version via pip:
pip install git+https://github.com/tliron/puccini#subdirectory=wrappers/python
Or, if you’ve cloned the repository locally:
pip install wrappers/python/
For testing it’s recommended to install in a virtualenv:
python -m venv env . env/bin/activate pip install git+https://github.com/tliron/puccini#subdirectory=wrappers/python
To build a distribution:
cd wrappers/python ./setup.py bdist
Or an egg:
The output will be in the
dist/ subdirectory here.
