A way of using CPython 2's C extension modules on other cffi compatible Python implementations
A bridge between PyPy and CPython that works by embedding CPython, its main purpose it to allow you to use any CPython module on PyPy (including C extensions).
- PyMetabiosis tries to link with the python command available on $PATH, however you can override this (if you want to use a virtualenv and/or if “python” points to PyPy) by setting the PYTHON_EMBED environment variable to a virtualenv (or /usr)
- Use pymetabiosis.module.import_module to import cpython modules on PyPy
Before pip installing the package, you must set the PYTHON_EMBED environment variable to a Python virtualenv (or /usr) and then do pip install git+https://github.com/rguillebert/pymetabiosis
