A tool to manage conversion of C++ code to Python.

Project description

A tool to manage conversion of C++ code to Python.

Sometimes you will find a great algorithm, but find that the only implementation of that algorithm is written in C or C++. In some cases it might be possible to wrap that C/C++ code in a Python C module. However, if a C module is not an option, you need to be able to convert the C/C++ implemention into a Pure Python implementation.

SeaSnake was written to automate the conversion of WebKit sources into a version that could be used by Colosseum.


In your virtualenv, install SeaSnake, and then run it, passing in the name of a C++ source file (or files, if you want to provide the header as well as the cpp file):

$ pip install seasnake
$ seasnake path/to/MyClass.h path/to/MyClass.cpp -o MyClass

This will generate a MyClass Python module.


SeaSnake is part of the BeeWare suite. You can talk to the community through:


If you experience problems with SeaSnake, log them on GitHub. If you want to contribute code, please fork the code and submit a pull request.
