PyZMQ: Python bindings for 0MQ
This package contains Python bindings for 0QM. 0MQ is a lightweight and fast messaging implementation.
Building and installation
To build and install this Python package, you will first need to build and install the latest development version of 0MQ itself. After you have done this, follow these steps:
First, copy the
setup.cfg.template file in this directory to
and edit the include_dirs and library_dirs fields of the
file to point to the directories that contain the library and header file for
your 0MQ installation.
Cython is not required to build pyzmq, but it is required if you want to develop pyzmq.
Second, run this command:
python setup.py install
If you want to develop this package, instead of this last command do:
python setup.py build_ext --inplace python setupegg.py develop
This will build the C extension inplace and then put this directory on your
sys.path. With this setup you only have to run:
python setup.py build_ext --inplace
each time you change the
On Windows, it is easiest to simply copy
zmq subdirectory and set
On Linux, you will need to do one of the following:
LD_LIBRARY_PATHto point to the :file:`lib` directory of 0MQ.
Build the extension using the
python setup.py build_ext --rpath=/opt/zeromq-dev/lib --inplace
