Python library supporting UEFI EDK2 firmware development

Project description

Tianocore Edk2 PyTool Library (edk2toollib)

This is a Tianocore maintained project consisting of a python library supporting UEFI firmware development. This package's intent is to provide an easy way to organize and share python code to facilitate reuse across environments, tools, and scripts. Inclusion of this package and dependency management is best managed using Pip/Pypi.

This is a supplemental package and is not required to be used for edk2 builds.

Current Status

Current Release

PyPI

All release information is now tracked with Github tags, releases and milestones.

Content

The package contains classes and modules that can be used as the building blocks of tools that are relevant to UEFI firmware developers. These modules should attempt to provide generic support and avoid tightly coupling with specific use cases. It is expected these modules do not provide direct interaction with the user (through command line interfaces) but instead are intended to be wrapped in other scripts/tools which contains the specific usage and interface.

Examples:

  • File parsers for edk2 specific file types. These parse the file and provide an object for interacting with the content.
  • UEFI specific services for encoding/decoding binary structures.
  • UEFI defined values and interfaces for usage in python
  • Python wrappers for other system cli tools ( signtool, catalog file generation, inf file generation, etc)
  • Python utilities to provide consistent logging, command invocation, path resolution, etc

Usage

NOTE: It is strongly recommended that you use python virtual environments. Virtual environments avoid changing the global python workspace and causing conflicting dependencies. Virtual environments are lightweight and easy to use. Learn more

  • To install run pip install --upgrade edk2-pytool-library

  • To use in your python code

    from edk2toollib.<module> import <class>
