Python binding to the wlroots library using cffi

Project description

Build Status

A Python binding to the wlroots library using cffi. The library uses pywayland to provide the Wayland bindings and python-xkbcommon to provide wlroots keyboard functionality.


The library can be installed from the packaged PyPI releases, which will pull in all of the necessary Python dependencies. In addition to the Python dependencies, pywlroots requires the wlroots and xkbcommon libraries and headers to be installed. At installation time, the cffi binding is compiled against these libraries.

To build pywlroots from source, the Python requirements will need to be installed manually. These are available in requirements.txt. The cffi bindings are built by running python wlroots/
