PyGObject ===== Original authors: James Henstridge <email@example.com> Johan Dahlin <firstname.lastname@example.org> Current maintainers: Gustavo J A M Carneiro <email@example.com> Paul Pogonyshev <firstname.lastname@example.org> Gian Mario Tagliaretti <email@example.com> Tomeu Vizoso <firstname.lastname@example.org> This archive contains bindings for the GLib, and GObject, to be used in Python. It is a fairly complete set of bindings, it's already rather useful, and is usable to write moderately complex programs. (see the examples directory for some examples of the simpler programs you could write). If you have any enhancements or bug reports, please file them in bugzilla at: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=pygobject If you have a patch, file the bug first and then use the "create new attachment" link on the bug's info page. My preferred format for patches is unified diff format (ie. diff -u). Please don't send me diffs which don't have any context, as these make it very difficult to see what the patch does. New Versions ============ New versions of this package can be found at: http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/pygobject/ Mailing list ============ pygobject share mailing list with pygtk. You can subscribe to it through the web interface: http://www.daa.com.au/mailman/listinfo/pygtk Requirements ============ * C compiler (GCC and MSVC supported) * Python 2.3.5 or higher * Glib 2.22.4 or higher * GIO 2.22.4 or higher * libffi (optional) Copyright Information ===================== This software is covered by the GNU Lesser General Public Licence (version 2.1, or if you choose, a later version). Basically just don't say you wrote bits you didn't. Compilation =========== PyGObject uses the standard autotools for the build infrastructure. To build, it should be as simple as running: $ ./configure --prefix=<prefix where python is installed> $ make $ make install If your Python interpreter isn't in the path, or is not called "python", you can set the PYTHON environment variable to the full path of the interpreter: $ PYTHON=/prefix/bin/python $ export PYTHON If configure can't find GTK+, you may need to set the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable to help it find the libraries. The "make install" target will generate normal and optimised bytecode for all the .py files. Note. If you're installing to another prefix than the one where python is installed you'll need to set the PYTHONPATH variable to the $prefix/lib/pythonX.Y/site-packages directory created by the PyGObject installation. Tests ===== After having compiled and installed pygobject, you may want to test them. There are a number of example programs available in the examples/ subdirectory. Getting Help ============ If you have questions about programming with PyGObject, you might want to send a message to the mailing list (information on subscribing is above). Alternatively, your question may be answered in the PyGTK FAQ: http://www.async.com.br/faq/pygtk/?req=index
