Library with high-level drivers for lab equipment

Project Description


NiceLib is a package for rapidly developing “nice” Python bindings to C libraries, using cffi.

NiceLib accomplishes this in two main ways: first, it converts header files (macros and all) into a format usable by cffi (i.e. it preprocesses them); second, it provides an API for quickly and cleanly defining pythonic mid-level interfaces that wrap low-level libraries.

For further information, documentation, examples, and more, see our page on ReadTheDocs.

For contributing, reporting issues, and providing feedback, see our GitHub page.


NiceLib is available on PyPI:

$ pip install nicelib

If you would like to use the development version, download and extract a zip of the source from our GitHub page or clone it using git. Now install:

$ cd /path/to/NiceLib
$ pip install .
