Compile .pyx to (.pyd|.so) very easily.

Project description

Because writing a each time is painful.



x64 2.7 3.4 3.5 3.6


x86 2.7 3.4 3.5 3.6
x64 2.7 3.4 3.5 3.6

Introduction is a script that will attempt to automatically convert one or more .pyx files into the corresponding compiled .pyd|.so binary modules files. Example:

$ python myext.pyx

pip install easycython will automatically create an executable script in your Scripts/ folder, so you should be able to simply:

$ easycython myext.pyx

or even:

$ easycython *.pyx

You can type:

$ easycython -h

to obtain the following CLI:

usage: [-h] [--annotation] [--no-annotation] [--numpy-includes]
                     [filenames [filenames ...]]

positional arguments:

optional arguments:
  -h, --help           show this help message and exit
  --no-annotation      (default: True)
  --no-numpy-includes  (default: True)
  • --annotation (default) will emit the HTML Cython annotation file.
  • --numpy-includes (default) will add the numpy headers to the build command.
  • Compiler flags -O2 -march=native are automatically passed to the compiler. I have not yet had to step through the generated C code with a debugger.
