Bindings to Ipopt C++ library.

Project description

Pypopt: Ipopt for Python

Pypopt is an Ipopt wrapper for Python. The aim is to expose the same API as Ipopt C++ interface.

Examples

You can find examples in the examples/ folder.

PythonJournal

In Pypopt you can use Python objects as targets for Ipopt journaling. The Python objects needs to implement two methods:

  • write(str): called to write str to the stream object
  • flush(): called to flush the stream

This means we can use Python3 io.StringIO to capture Ipopt output to string:

app = IpoptApplication()
f = io.StringIO()
j = PythonJournal(EJournalLevel.J_NONE, f)
jnlst = app.journalist()
jnlst.add_journal(j)

Requirements

  • A working C++ compiler
  • Cython
  • Ipopt
  • Pytest + pytest-runner + pytest-cov for testing

Ipopt Installation

We recommend installing Ipopt from source.

If you have Ipopt installed in a different location than /usr set the following environment variables before proceeding to the next section:

IPOPT_INCLUDE_DIR=/path/to/ipopt/include
IPOPT_LIBRARY_DIR=/path/to/ipopt/lib

Installation

Pypopt is available on Pypi:

pip install pypopt

Installation from Source

To install pypopt simply run:

python setup.py install

Troubleshooting

Pypopt is a Cython extension, this makes it sometimes tricky to install correctly.

Different toolchain for Ipopt and Pypopt

Ipopt and Pypopt need to be compiled with the same C++ toolchain. If that’s not the case, you will see an error like the following when loading Pypopt:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
File "/lib/python3.6/site-packages/pypopt/__init__.py", line 24, in <module>
  from pypopt._cython import (
ImportError: /lib/python3.6/site-packages/pypopt/_cython.cpython-36m-x86_64-linux-gnu.so: undefined symbol: _ZN5Ipopt7Journal4NameB5cxx11Ev

This means Ipopt and Pypopt were compiled with different compilers/flags. To fix this issue install Ipopt from source and set the IPOPT_INCLUDE_DIR and IPOPT_LIBRARY_DIR environment variables to your Ipopt installation.
