Build Status PyPI Version Python Versions


NOTE: This package is not yet fully functional!

xapian-bindings is a meta-package to simplify installation of the xapian-bindings extension for Python. It determines the version of xapian-bindings to use based on the version of xapian-core installed; downloads and extracts the source code; then runs ./configure, make and make install.

This project is not affiliated with the Xapian project in any way.


  1. Ensure you have essential build & development tools installed on your system.
  2. Ensure you have xapian-core installed via your system package manager or source tarball.
  3. Run pip install --no-cache-dir xapian-bindings.
  4. Verify installation by running python -c "import xapian; print(xapian.__version__)".


  • Prevent building binary package (wheel) and/or using cached wheel.
  • Record files installed under site-packages/xapian/.
  • Uninstall files under site-packages/xapian/.
  • Add .travis.yml.
