The repository contains code that taken from the LLVM project, to make it easier to install clang's python bindings.

The repository copys necessary Python binding files from LLVM repo, and adds packaging scripts to make it a valid Python package, the uploads the package to pypi. To make the libclang available without install the LLVM toolkits, this package provides bundled static-linked libclang shared library for different platforms, which, should work well on OSX, Windows, as well as usual Linux distributions.

The aim of this project is to make the clang.cindex (aka., Clang Python Bindings) available for more Python users, without setup the LLVM environment. To install the package, you just need to run

pip install libclang

Note that the library is named libclang, the package clang on PyPi is another package and doesn't bundle the prebuilt shared library.


Update class variable library_path of Config in as:

    library_path = os.path.join(os.path.dirname(os.path.realpath(__file__)), 'native')


This repository follows the license agreement of the LLVM project, see Apache-2.0 WITH LLVM-exception.
