PyFFI

https://img.shields.io/travis/niftools/pyffi/develop.svg?label=Linux%20Build&logo=travis https://img.shields.io/appveyor/ci/neomonkeus/pyffi/develop.svg?label=Windows%20Build&logo=appveyor https://img.shields.io/coveralls/github/niftools/pyffi/develop.svg?label=Coverage

The Python File Format Interface, briefly PyFFI, is an open source Python library for processing block structured binary files:

  • Simple: Reading, writing, and manipulating complex binary files in a Python environment is easy! Currently, PyFFI supports the NetImmerse/Gamebryo NIF and KFM formats, CryTek's CGF format, the FaceGen EGM format, the DDS format, and the TGA format.
  • Batteries included: Many tools for files used by 3D games, such as optimizers, stripifier, tangent space calculator, 2d/3d hull algorithms, inertia calculator, as well as a general purpose file editor QSkope (using PyQt4), are included.
  • Modular: Its highly modular design makes it easy to add support for new formats, and also to extend existing functionality.

Download

Get PyFFI from Github, or install it with:

easy_install -U PyFFI

or:

pip3 install PyFFI

Developing

To get the latest (but possibly unstable) code, clone PyFFI from its Git repository:

git clone --recursive git://github.com/niftools/pyffi.git
virtualenv -p python3 venv
source venv/bin/activate
pip install -r requirements/requirements-dev.txt

Be sure to use the --recursive flag to ensure that you also get all of the submodules.

If you wish to code on PyFFI and send your contributions back upstream, get a github account and fork PyFFI.

Testing

We love tests, they help guarantee that things keep working they way they should. You can run them yourself with the following:

source venv/bin/activate
nosetest -v test

or:

source venv/bin/activate
py.test -v tests

Documentation

All our documentation is written in ReST and can be generated into HTML, LaTeX, PDF and more thanks to Sphinx. You can generate it yourself:

source venv/bin/activate
cd docs
make html -a
