Access Windows Runtime APIs from Python

Project description


The Windows Runtime Python Projection (Python/WinRT) enables Python developers to access Windows Runtime APIs directly from Python in a natural and familiar way.

Getting Started



Python/WinRT can be installed from the Python Package Index via pip. Assuming pip is on the path, Python/WinRT can be installed from the command line with the following command:

> pip install winrt

You can test that Python/WinRT is installed correctly by launching Python and running the following snippet of Python code. It should print "" to the console.

import as wf
u = wf.Uri("")
u2 = u.combine_uri("Microsoft/xlang/tree/master/src/tool/python")

For more information on accessing Windows Runtime APIs from Python, please visit Python/WinRT's homepage.

For an end-to-end sample of using Python/WinRT, please see the WinML Tutorial in the samples folder of the xlang GitHub repo.
