python_cpp_example

This repository contains an example Python module which wraps C++ code. The code presented here was designed to meet four requirements:

  1. Python bindings for C++ code (using pybind11 and built with CMake)
  2. Unit tests for C++ code (using catch)
  3. Unit tests for Python code (using unittest)
  4. A setuptools setup.py script for building, installation, and testing

Please see the blog post that accompanies this repository for more information.

NOTE: If you'd like to see the version of the repository that corresponds to my original June 2017 blog post, go to this release. However, I no longer recommend using the repository structure from this old release.

Installation

To build and install python_cpp_example, clone or download this repository and then, from within the repository, run:

python3 ./setup.py install

or

pip3 install .

Tests

To execute all unit tests, run the following command:

python3 ./setup.py test

Requirements

  • Python 2 or 3
  • CMake 2.8.12 or higher
  • A modern compiler with C++11 support

Acknowledgements

Much of the code in this repository was adapted from the pybind11 tutorial and the pybind11 example CMake repository.
