Python Bindings for OpenDDS

Project description


Python Bindings for OpenDDS.

This project is still a work in progress! It currently only supports what is necessary for tests/basic_test and little else. See the GitHub issues for limitations.


  • Currently only Linux has been tested, but macOS should work and Windows might work.
  • Python >= 3.7
    • This uses the C API of CPython, so PyPy or any other Python implementation is not supported.
  • OpenDDS
    • Right now this is being developed using the master branch of OpenDDS.
  • CMake >= 3.12
  • A C++14 Compiler

Building PyOpenDDS and Running the Basic Test

Once $DDS_ROOT/ has been sourced or the equivalent, run the commands below in this directory.

# Build and Install PyOpenDDS
pip install .

# Build Basic Test
cd tests/basic_test
mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..

# Build and Install Basic Test Python Type Support
itl2py -o basic_output basic_idl basic.itl
cd basic_output
basic_idl_DIR=$(realpath ..) pip install .

# Run Basic Test
cd ../..
