PyJNIus

A Python module to access Java classes as Python classes using JNI. Warning: the pypi name is now pyjnius instead of jnius.

Build Status PyPI Backers on Open Collective Sponsors on Open Collective

Installation

Requirements: Cython

pip install Cython
pip install pyjnius

Quick overview

>>> from jnius import autoclass
>>> autoclass('java.lang.System').out.println('Hello world')
Hello world

>>> Stack = autoclass('java.util.Stack')
>>> stack = Stack()
>>> stack.push('hello')
>>> stack.push('world')
>>> print stack.pop()
world
>>> print stack.pop()
hello

Usage on desktop

You need a java JDK installed (OpenJDK will do), Cython and make to build it. Please ensure that your JDK_HOME or JAVA_HOME environment variable points to the installed JDK root directory, and that the JVM library (jvm.so or jvm.dll) is available from your PATH environment variable. Failure to do so may result in a failed install, or a successful install but inability to use the pyjnius library.

make

That's it! You can run the tests using

make tests

to ensure everything is running correctly.

Usage with python-for-android

from time import sleep
from jnius import autoclass

Hardware = autoclass('org.renpy.android.Hardware')
print 'DPI is', Hardware.getDPI()

Hardware.accelerometerEnable(True)
for x in xrange(20):
    print Hardware.accelerometerReading()
    sleep(.1)

It will output something like:

I/python  ( 5983): Android kivy bootstrap done. __name__ is __main__

Advanced example

When you use autoclass, it will discover all the methods and fields of the object and resolve them. For now, it is better to declare and use only what you need. The previous example can be done manually as follows:

from time import sleep
from jnius import MetaJavaClass, JavaClass, JavaMethod, JavaStaticMethod

class Hardware(JavaClass):
    __metaclass__ = MetaJavaClass
    __javaclass__ = 'org/renpy/android/Hardware'
    vibrate = JavaStaticMethod('(D)V')
    accelerometerEnable = JavaStaticMethod('(Z)V')
    accelerometerReading = JavaStaticMethod('()[F')
    getDPI = JavaStaticMethod('()I')
    
# use that new class!
print 'DPI is', Hardware.getDPI()

Hardware.accelerometerEnable()
for x in xrange(20):
    print Hardware.accelerometerReading()
    sleep(.1)
