CFFI module for calling C++ code from within Python

Project Description
CFFIpp
======

CFFIpp is like [cffi](https://cffi.readthedocs.org), but
generates bindings for C++, by mapping them to C through cffi.

Example
=======

Comes straight from a unit test:

```python
ffi = FFIpp()
ffi.cdef("""
class testClass {
public:
testClass();
void test(int);
int returnsInt(int);
private:
void shouldNotBeInModule();
};
""")
self.assertTrue(ffi.has_class("testClass"))

ffi.set_source("example_module", """
class testClass {
public:
testClass(){}
void test(int){/*nop*/}
int returnsInt(int){return 1;}
private:
void shouldNotBeInModule() {/*nop*/}
};""")
ffi.compile()
import example_module
c = example_module.testClass()
self.assertEqual(c.returnsInt(5), 1)
```

Caveats
=======

1. This is experimental software;
2. Adds a (albeit tiny) layer between Python and your C++ classes,
using a stupid C wrapper.
3. No overloading support, no type conversion yet, except for the `cffi`
stuff.
4. Returning C++ objects from methods will not yield Python objects yet.
5. Will only wrap classes, not mixable with C stuff at this moment.
6. Ironically, you probably need CPython to run this, because it relies on
clang bindings to proprocess C++ code.

Development
===========

Development takes place at [my GitLab repository](https://gitlab.com/rubdos/cffipp/).
Merge requests and issues are welcome. If you want to start hacking on this project,
feel free to do so. Good starting places are the TODO.md file and the caveats listed before.
