A reimplementation of pywin32 that is pure python. The default behaviour will try to use cffi (>= 1.3.0), if available, and fall back to using ctypes. Please note that there is no need to have a compiler available on installation or at runtime.
# Equivalent to 'import win32api' from pywin32. from win32ctypes.pywin32 import win32api win32api.LoadLibraryEx(sys.executable, 0, win32api.LOAD_LIBRARY_AS_DATAFILE)
Currently pywin32ctypes implements only a very small subset of pywin32, for internal needs at Enthought. We do welcome additional features and PRs, though.
The following should be good enough:
pip install -r dev_requirements.txt python install -e
- While pywin32-ctypes should regularly be tested on windows, you can also develop/test on unix by using wine
