Improved build system generator for Python C extensions

Project description

Improved build system generator for CPython C extensions.

Better support is available for additional compilers, build systems, cross compilation, and locating dependencies and determining their build requirements. The scikit-build package is fundamentally just glue between the setuptools Python module and CMake. Currently, the package is available to perform builds in a file. In the future, the project aims to be a build tool option in the currently developing pyproject.toml build system specification.

PyCMake was created at SciPy 2014 in response to general difficulties building C++ and Fortran based Python extensions across platforms. It was renamed to “scikit-build” in 2016.
