Project description

Python Boost wrappers

starbug.com coordinate Python wrappers

This module contains the source to generate Python wrappers for the C++ classes in libCoords using Boost. This library is assumed to have been built first. coords.cpp contains the Boost macros that are used to generate the wrappers. setup.py builds them.

There are some differences from the manual version, like not having a coords.Error exception but using RuntimeError instead. The static unit vectors have also moved from coords.Ux to coords.Cartesian.Ux. Similarly for Uy, Uz, and Uo.

To Build

The build is done using make on the command line. There are targets for clean and test. See the Makefile for details.

This Makefile will not build libCoords. That must be done before this.

setup.py expects to find libCoords.dylib in libCoords and Boost to be in /usr/local. See setup.py for details.

Build Tools

Boost

The Boost Python library must be installed before this build will work.

On OS X with brew

The easiest way I found to install and maintain boost on OS X is to use homebrew. Open the boost-python bottle. The python wrappers are not in the "regular" boost bottle.

$ brew install boost-python  --with-python3

On CentOS with yum

sudo yum install boost-devel

On Ubuntu with apt-get

sudo apt-get install libboost-all-dev

from source

To built and install from the boost source, unpack the tar-ball in /usr/local

cd /usr/local/boost_1_56_0

./bootstrap.sh
./b2
sudo ./b2 install

The boost files are now in /usr/local/include/boost and /usr/local/lib/libboost_*. python/Boost/setup.py sets BOOST_ROOT to point there. On OS X brew doctor will notice and complain about this.

The run time environment with setenv.sh

On the local host, relative to this directory, the runtime environment expects libCoords to be built.

On OS X, this needs to be on the DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH. On Linux, this needs to be on the LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

The PYTHONPATH must contain the boost coords.so.

setenv.sh will detect the platform using uname and set the appropriate library path and use COORDS_ORIGIN environment variable to find coords.so. If COORDS_ORIGIN is not set, it will assume it is relative to this directory.

An Interactive Session

You can use pylaunch.sh to set up an interactive session.

Here I use the spherical coordinates with the radius of the earth, the latitude (which needs to be converted to the theta angle from the positive z axis), and longitude of two locations to calculate the distance between them.

$ ./pylaunch.sh
# COORDS_ROOT not set. Using ../..
# coords.so: ../../python/Boost/build/lib.macosx-10.9-intel-2.7/coords.so
# DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH :../../libCoords
# PYTHONPATH :../../python/Boost/build/lib.macosx-10.9-intel-2.7

>>> import coords
>>> keplers = coords.spherical(6371, coords.angle(90) - coords.angle(37, 27, 13), coords.angle(-122, 10, 55))
>>> booksinc = coords.spherical(6371, coords.angle(90) - coords.angle(37, 23, 32.4852), coords.angle(-122, 4, 46.2252))
>>> print keplers - booksinc
<spherical><r>11.3235</r><theta>61.4649</theta><phi>123.282</phi></spherical>

To test a component wiht pylaunch.sh

Use pylaunch.sh to call setenv.sh. Select one of the associated python unittest scripts, e.g. test_Cartesian.py, along with the usual command line options like -v

$ ./pylaunch.sh test_angle.py -v

# COORDS_ROOT not set. Using ../..
# coords.so: ../../Python/Boost/build/lib.macosx-10.9-intel-2.7/coords.so

To run a single unit test

From the command line, pass in the UnitTest test harness and test name, e.g. TestCartesian, test_default_constructor to the test script

$ ./pylaunch.sh test_Cartesian.py -v TestCartesian.test_default_constructor

# COORDS_ROOT not set. Using ../..
# coords.so: ../../Python/Boost/build/lib.macosx-10.9-intel-2.7/coords.so

test_default_constructor (__main__.TestCartesian)

To test all components

$ ./test_coords.sh -v

PyPI dist

The Makefile as a dist target to build the python distribution files.

$ pwd
.../Coordinates/Python/Boost

$ make dist
env ARCHFLAGS="-arch x86_64" python setup.py build

/Users/lrm/.pyenv/versions/3.7.0/lib/python3.7/distutils/dist.py:274: UserWarning: Unknown distribution option: 'long_description_content_type'
  warnings.warn(msg)

TODO: It complains about long_description_content_type, but it doesn't render correctly with out it.

Make clean will remove them

$ make clean
rm -f -r build dist coords.egg-info

PyPI

I use the packaging python projects instructions to push builds to a PyPI distribution.

You will need to increment the version number in setup.py to push a new package.

Use twine to upload the distribution

To Test PyPI

$ twine upload --repository-url https://test.pypi.org/legacy/ dist/*
