Python bindings for the libwayland library written in pure Python

Project Description

Built against Wayland 1.10.0

PyWayland provides a wrapper to the libwayland library using the CFFI library to provide access to the Wayland library calls and written in pure Python.

Below is outlined some of the basics of PyWayland and how to get up and running. For more help, see the full documentation.

Current Release

PyWayland is still in a developmental state. An initial version 0.0.1a.dev7 is available on the cheese shop. Current development versions can be obtained from the git repository, feedback, as well as any bug reports or fixes are highly appreciated.

Dependencies

PyWayland requires six and cffi to run on Python >=3.4. On lower Python versions, enum34 is required. PyWayland is tested against Python 2.7, 3.2+, PyPy, and PyPy3 (see Running Tests).

Installing

Installation can be done through pip to pull the most recently tagged release. To see instructions on running from sounce, see the relevant documentation on installing from source.

Building Wayland protocols

In order to run from source, you will need to generate the interfaces to the Wayland protocol objects as defined in the wayland.xml file. By default, this file will be located in /usr/share/wayland/wayland.xml. In this case, the protocol files can be generated from the setup.py file:

$ python setup.py generate_protocol

See the help for this command to use non-default locations for the input and output of the scanner.

The scanner is installed as a script pywayland-scanner when PyWayland is installed. See pywayland-scanner -h for more information.

Running Tests

PyWayland implements a (currently limited) test-suite in ./tests. The tests can be run through py.test. Be sure you build the protocol files (see Building Wayland protocols) before running the tests.
